Court McGee is a current welterweight and former middleweight fighter in the UFC.
The Ultimate Fighter and Middleweight RunEdit
He most recently won the eleventh season of the Ultimate Fighter defeating Kris McCray via second-round rear-naked choke.
He went on to defeat veteran Ryan Jensen via third-round arm triangle submission. Apparently McGee also broke his hand during the bout.
After recovering, McGee next faced well-rounded slugger Dongi Yang. McGee defeated Yang via a lackluster unanimous decision.
After a little bit of a hiatus, McGee signed to return to face heavy-handed Constantinos Philippou. Philippou defeated McGee via an impressive decision that took place entirely on the feet between the two former professional boxers.
McGee next faced Nick Ring in a rematch of their amateur fight on The Ultimate Fighter. Ring had won that first fight via a hotly contested majority decision but had been injured, McGee had been picked as a wild card to return and had eventually won the season tournament championship. The rematch was sure to be just as exciting. And indeed it was, with Ring winning a close, controversial and bloody unanimous decision.
After the controversial loss, McGee stated "I felt like I had cage control, was more aggressive, out-struck him and attempted a submission in the third round. I should not have left it in the hands of the judges and finished the fight."
McGee then dropped down to the welterweight division to make his debut against veteran slugger Josh Neer. McGee defeated Neer via a war of a unanimous decision.
Months later McGee next signed to fight fellow TUF winner, the Australian Robert Whittaker. McGee defeated Whittaker via a war of a split decision.
