Middleweight Bout – Court McGee vs. Ryan Jensen – UFC 121

October 21, 2010

On Saturday, October 23, Spike TV will show two undercard fights from UFC 121. Court McGee against Ryan Jensen will be pitted in the second of the two fights.

For the first time since winning The Ultimate Fighter this past June, McGee will return to the octagon. By submitting Kris McCray via rear-naked choke in the second round, he won the crown. To earn McGee “Submission of the Night”, the submission was also good enough.

The win was McGee’s sixth in a row, against McCray. With six of his wins coming by submission, he has amassed a 12-1 record in his career. At the Ultimate Combat Experience in December of 2007, his lone loss was by unanimous decision against Jeremy Horn.

Since 1997, Ryan Jensen has been competing in MMA. In the timeframe, he has compiled a 15-6 record and he is 2-4 in UFC fights. Jensen, in his last four fights is 2-2. At UFC Fight Night 19, he lost to Wilson Gouveia and to Mark Muñoz at UFC 108. By way of submission came both the losses. He defeated Jesse Forbes with a guillotine choke submission 66 seconds into the first round, in his most recent fight.

Sports betting online experts favorite, McGee comes into the fight with a lot of hype, as the winner of a popular reality show. Jensen believes he can win back-to-back UFC fights for the first time and he isn’t concerned about the hype or about McGee’s strong record. Jensen said, “I’m not really worried about this dude at all technically. He hasn’t fought anybody tough.”
