Fifth loss in last six tries
WelterweightUFC
October 3, 2020
McGee lost to Carlos Condit via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
ANALYSIS
The first few minutes were largely a feeling out process, with neither veteran landing much of note. McGee at least held the center of the Octagon and seemed to be a bit busier in Round 1. He did get a scare in the final seconds, as a massive right hook sent McGee crashing to the canvas and potentially resulted in a broken nose. McGee was saved by the bell, but was clearly compromised in his corner between rounds. He nonetheless made it out for the second, but Condit went for (and landed on) the injured nose. While McGee eventually got his wits back about him, it was seemingly Condit that was landing with the more fluid combinations. While McGee turned up the volume a bit in Round 3 and may have even taken the lead in terms of total strikes, it was Condit who more head shots, and of course, the most damaging shot of the fight. McGee has now lost three fights in a row and five of his last six overall.
Back in Octagon in October
WelterweightUFC
August 19, 2020
McGee will fight Carlos Condit in a welterweight matchup at the UFC event scheduled for October 3, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
McGee will be looking to avoid dropping to 1-5 in his last six fights, but is drawing a fighter with similar results of late, as Condit finds himself on a five-fight losing streak. The difference is that Condit is a former champion and long-time title contender who has faced a significantly higher caliber of competition. As such, McGee will presumably enter as an underdog, but it's incredibly tough to gauge a matchup of past-their prime veterans with any level of confidence. If McGee is able to pull off a win against a name like Condit, he could very well buy himself a few more fights in the UFC.
Falls to 1-4 in last five fights
WelterweightUFC
October 18, 2019
McGee lost to Sean Brady via unanimous decision (28-29, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC Fight Night on Friday in Boston.
ANALYSIS
McGee is known as one of the toughest guys around and he proved it once again on Friday. Although he was only awarded a single round by the three judges, Court was plenty competitive in this fight. The 34-year-old veteran picked up his output as the fight progressed and clearly looked stronger in Round 3 than he did in Round 1, but was ultimately unable to land enough significant offense to earn a decision. McGee clearly has some gas left in the tank and has displayed an ability to remain competitive if the UFC matches him up against reasonable competition, but he is sporting a 1-4 record dating back to January 2017.

McGee will go up against Sean Brady at UFC on ESPN 6 in Boston on October 18, John Morgan of MMA Junkie reports.
ANALYSIS
It's been a tough stretch for McGee, who has lost three of his last four fights after falling to Dhiego Lima via split decision at UFC Fight Night 150 back in April. That dropped his UFC record to 8-7, and he will now look to bounce back against one of the sport's rising stars in Brady, who is a perfect 10-0 in his professional career.
Bested by Lima in Fort Lauderdale opener
WelterweightUFC
April 27, 2019
McGee lost a split decision (27-30, 28-29, 29-28) to Dhiego Lima at UFC Fort Lauderdale on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
McGee had his moments, but was unable to extinguish the durable Brazilian fighter. He'll end up credited with 65 significant strikes and a second-round knockdown, so it wasn't a complete disaster from a fantasy perspective. After dropping his third fight in his last four opportunities, the veteran's record will fall to 19-8 overall.
