Another UFC middleweight bout on the Spike TV undercard, but with vastly different implications than Tom Lawlor vs. Patrick Cote. Season 11 winner of The Ultimate Fighter, Court McGee was out to prove his talent wasn't just TUF worthy, but UFC worthy. Ryan Jensen, on the other hand, was looking to make the post of a big opportunity against a name much more familiar to UFC fans than his own. The battle-tested veteran and the underdog who made good were looking for an impressive performance on one of the biggest cards of the year.

So how did the first round go? All Jensen. While he slowed his pace at the end, early on he controlled both distance and striking. He even was able to work superior grappling. He tagged McGee, landing several big punches that, if nothing else, stalled the winner of season 11 of The Ultimate Fighter.

Round two was much better for Court McGee. Not only did he end the round with an outside trip from double underhooks, but he was able to take advantage of Jensen's much slower pace. While Jensen was able to land inside leg kicks and plenty of jabs, he wasn't able to have the definite experience he had in round 1.

Round three started off much to McGee's delight. A big punch rocked Jensen early, McGee was able to take Jensen down and pass guard even to mount. From there the TUF 11 winner was able to sink a head and arm triangle to finish the fight.
