UFC 121: Court McGee vs Ryan Jensen on tap for October 23 in Anaheim


Now it's time to prove you belong.

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 11 winner Court McGee successfully managed to beat out the competition on the UFC's reality show, but consistently winning inside the Octagon is a completely different ball game.

The first real test for "The Crusher" will come in the form of Ryan Jensen at UFC 121 on October 23 in Anaheim, California. This according to MMA Weekly.

McGee of course is coming off his win over Kris McCray at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 11 Finale back in June in which he earned the title of the next Ultimate Fighter, as well as a six-figure contract with the UFC. 

Court entered the TUF house with quite an impressive resume, carrying a record of 8-1 with his only loss coming to Jeremy Horn. Yes, that Jeremy Horn. One of McGee's victims along the way was none other than The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 9 Finalist DaMarques Johnson.

Court being considered the underdog throughout the competition, was, well, obviously a mistake.

McGee's well-rounded game coupled with his sponge-like absorption of Team Liddell's coaching during the show did the Utah bred fighter well. And with a considerable amount of time to take his game to yet another level since the end of the reality show competition, his days as an underdog my very well be over.

Ryan Jensen was last seen in action at UFC 114: "Rampage vs. Evans" where he submitted Jesse Forbes via guillotine in the first round to run his UFC record to 2-2, and his overall record to 15-6.

Having competed against guys like Mark Munoz, Thales Leites, Joey Villasenor, and Demian Maia; the Jackson's Submission Fighting product will no doubt be up to the challenge in facing the new kid on the block.

UFC 121 is set to be headlined by Brock Lesnar's heavyweight title defense against undefeated fighter Cain Velasquez.
