Longtime Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight Court McGee will look to snap a two-fight losing streak against Alex Garcia at UFC Fight Night 138 next month in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada, the promotion announced Friday.
McGee (18-7), winner of “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 11, has dropped his last two fights to Sean Strickland and Ben Saunders, and hasn’t won a fight since 2016. Garcia has had an inconsistent UFC run since signing with the promotion back in 2013, where he scored a brutal 43-second knockout against Ben Wall in his Octagon debut. Since then, the power-punching Garcia hasn’t been able to put together a winning streak, amassing a 5-4 UFC record overall.
Garcia (15-5) himself will be looking to rebound following a loss to Ryan LaFlare in April.
UFC Fight Night 138 takes place on Oct. 27 and features a light heavyweight main event between Volkan Oezdemir and Anthony Smith.
