The UFC is starting to slowly build its final card on big FOX.

Two fights have been added to UFC on FOX 31 on Dec. 15 in Milwaukee — Bobby Green vs. Drakkar Klose and Gerald Meerschaert vs. Jack Hermansson per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Green (24-8-1) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Erik Koch at UFC on FOX 27 in January. The California lightweight is unbeaten in his last two fights after a string of three straight losses. Green, 31, had an eight-fight winning streak from 2011 to 2014 and at one point was closing in on a 155-pound title shot.

Klose (9-1-1) beat Lando Vannata at UFC 226 by unanimous decision. The MMA Lab product was handed the first loss of his career last December at UFC 218 against David Teymur by unanimous decision. Klose, 30, remains a promising potential future ranked contender in the lightweight division.

Meerschaert (28-9) most recently defeated Oskar Piechota via second-round submission at the TUF 27 Finale in July. The 30-year-old Roufusport product and and Wisconsin native has won two straight. Hermansson (17-4) is coming off a huge third-round TKO of Thales Leites at UFC 224 in May. The 30-year-old Sweden native has won three of four and shown a nose for knockouts.

UFC on FOX 31 does not yet have an announced main event. The event, held at Fiserv Forum, will cap the UFC’s seven years with FOX Sports as its broadcast deal with ESPN begins in January.
