The UFC has recently announced a middleweight clash between TUF 11 winner Court McGee and up and comer Constantinos Philippou for the promotion’s second installation on FX, which goes down March 3rd at the Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia.
Coming off a unanimous decision victory over Korean slugger Dongi Yang, McGee is a perfect 3-0 in his octagon career, submitting Kris McCray back in June of 2010 to win the glass plaque and doing the same to Ryan Jensen in his post-TUF debut the following October. After dropping a decision to Nick Catone in his own debut, Philippou has notched two straight, scoring a split decision over Jorge Rivera at UFC 133 before absolutely blistering Jared Hamman at UFC 140. This one’s gonna be a brawl, ladies and gents.
Though the UFC’s debut on FX has yet to transpire (it goes down on January 20th), the second card for the network is quickly beginning to fill up with exciting match-ups. Not only will the main event feature an AWESOME Muy Thai clinic when welterweight contenders Martin Kampmann and Thiago Alves lock horns, but UFC on FX 2 will also debut the flyweight division via a four man tournament. Former bantamweight title challenger Demetrious Johnson will tangle with “Uncle Creepy” Ian McCall and eventual tournament winner Joseph Benavidez will battle Yasuhiro Urushitani. Also booked on the card is a light heavyweight contest between Aaron Rosa and James Te Huna.
Who you guys got for these? Except for the Benavidez/Urushitani match, of course.
