Second straight strong effort
WelterweightUFC
January 15, 2022
McGee defeated Ramiz Brahimaj via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC on ESPN 32 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
McGee has a hard time at his advanced age in anything other than ugly, grinding affairs, but that's what this fight turned into, and it resulted in an easy win for the veteran. McGee displayed surprising power with a late knockdown of Brahimaj in Round 1, but it was his five successful takedowns attempts for 10:57 worth of control time which ultimately won him the fight. Court has now put together back-to-back quality efforts, albeit against lesser competition. The UFC still needs to be exceedingly careful regarding who they match him up against moving forward despite this recent run of success.
Scheduled for Brahimaj in 2022

October 11, 2021
McGee will take on Ramiz Brahimaj in a welterweight matchup at the UFC event scheduled for Jan. 15, MMA DNA reports.
ANALYSIS
McGee came through with his back against the wall in May, taking a unanimous decision from Claudio Silva to snap a three-fight losing streak. He now draws a prospect specializing in jiu-jitsu, as all nine of Brahimaj's professional victory have been earned by way of submission. Fortunately for McGee, he has never been submitted in 30 professional fights and owns a respectable 69 percent takedown defense. McGee will look to use height and reach advantages of one and three inches, respectively, to keep this fight up on the feet, where he'll have a major statistical advantage in striking volume.
Turns back clock with strong effort
WelterweightUFC
May 22, 2021
McGee defeated Claudio Silva via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-26, 29-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It was a dominant effort from McGee in a fight which began as a pick 'em. Court leaned on his exceptional cardio and wrestling to secure the victory. He landed three successful takedowns, which turned into 7:58 worth of control time. He limited Silva's time and space throughout the course of the bout and smothered his opponent en route to an easy unanimous decision victory. It was a shockingly strong performance from McGee considering he had lost five of his previous six fights and had just a single victory on his resume dating back to August 2016. Now 36 years of age, this fight was a blueprint for how Court will have to fight moving forward in order to be successful.

McGee (19-10-0) is slated to face Claudio Silva (14-2-0) in a welterweight fight at the UFC's May 22 event, Guilherme Cruz and Damon Martin of MMAFighting.com report.
ANALYSIS
McGee will look to get back on track in his return to the Octagon after taking losses in each of his last three fights. The 36-year-old is 3-7 overall in his last 10 bouts, with his most recent defeat coming against Carlos Condit last October in Abu Dhabi.
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.
