Court McGee: From half-naked drug addict to TUF 11 Finalist

Quoteworthy:

"From where I was four years ago to where I’m at today, there’s no words to describe the feeling and the gratitude. I worked very hard to get here. Not that everyone else didn’t, but I was given an opportunity, and I took full advantage of it. I lost everything. I had no friends. I had no family, and my life was meaningless. I didn’t know what I was doing. I didn’t know where I was going. ... I was just done mentally and physically. Spiritually, too. April 16, everything turned around. I never give up, man. If I’d have given up, I would be dead today. I’m not. I’m here and getting ready to fight. Regardless of the outcome, I feel as if I’m winning anyway because I could go right back out there and be (messed) up again using drugs. As far as I’m concerned, I’m winning the battle."

Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 11 finalist Court McGee is one fight away from completing an unlikely (and somewhat miraculous) turnaround in his life. The last time McGee was in Las Vegas he was wandering the streets with no pants looking for meth. Now he's back (and sober four years) as one of TUF's biggest success stories, which he can cap off on Saturday night (June 19) against Kris McCray. Can he fight his way through one final battle and make it to the promised land?
