McGeeMcCray261TUF11Court McGee (14-3) made a statement with a controlling unaninous decision win over Josh Neer (33-13-1) on the PPV card at UFC 157 from the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., on Saturday night.

The TUF Season 11 winner, McGee stepped down to welterweight for the first time in his career and he showed no signs of slowing down as he outstruck Neer snapping a two-fight losing streak.

McGee came out striking early, utilizing his reach advantage trading kicks with the UFC veteran. McGee rocked Neer with a left hand and kept busy on his feet piling on the pressure. McGee switched up his attack with numerous combinations and hurt Neer with a kick to the body. The 28-year-old went on the attack with Neer backtracking and dropped him before landing ground and pound, with the bell saving Neer.

McGee, who has never been stopped in his career, opened the second round with stinging leg kicks and caught Neer as he came forward. Neer was able to do the better work in round two, working behind his jab tagging McGee and was unlucky not to win the round on the scorecards.

With Neer tiring, McGee returned to his first round form working his jab, and landing short shots with Neer backed against the cage. McGee secured the first takedown of the fight, but Neer quickly scrambled to his feet before being taken down again landing in top position. Neer gave up his back and McGee looked to lock in a submission attempt, but Neer showed good defense, but it was McGee who closed off the fight stronger reigning down with elbows to claim the decision.

The judges scored the fight unanimously to McGee 30-27 on all three scorecards.
