COURT MCGEE VS JEREMIAH WELLS LOWDOWN
A lot of people though Court McGee (21-10) was done after losing five in six fights. The win was a unanimous decision over Alex Garcia (2018) but he went on to outpointed himself by Dhiego Lima (2019), Sean Brady (2019) and Carlos Condit (2020). He was fighting for his UFC career when he took on Claudio Silva (2021) and pulled a vintage performance out the bag with a unanimous decision. He then made it two in a row against Ramiz Brahimaj (2022) to pick up some unexpected momentum.
He now takes on the up-and-coming Jeremiah Wells (10-2-1). After starching Mumia Abu Dey-Ali (2019) and then submitting Marco Smallman (2019) for CFFC, he got the call-up to the big leagues. He had three debut fights fall through and eventually made his debut nearly two yers on from his last fight against another UFC veteran in Warlley Alves (2021). He shook off any rust immediately and knocked Alves out in the second round. He then followed that up with a first-round submission over Mike Mathetha (2022).
COURT MCGEE VS JEREMIAH WELLS PREDICTION
Wells is on fire right now, full of confidence and has a great opportunity to add another name to the record. He is a natural finisher with four knockouts and submissions, but he has to prepare to a hard three rounds as McGee has proven time and time again that he will not go away.
The veteran has a limited skill set, but his cardio and durability is off the chain. We all know what to expect from him now and that will be to simply chain takedowns together and suffocate Wells with his pressure.
Wells is a powerhouse and a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jiu, so he will make McGee work very hard, but we can see the veteran causing the upset by subduing him for three rounds.
Considering only one of McGee’s last 17 fights have not gone to a decision which was a knockout loss to Santiago Ponzinnibio in 2016, this is going to a decision which has McGee’s name on it.
