Drops decision at UFC Norfolk
November 12, 2017
McGee lost to Sean Strickland via unanimous decision (29-29, 29-29, 27-30) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Norfolk, Virginia.
The scoring of this fight was strange in that the scorecards were somehow added wrongly and the outcome was originally announced as a majority draw. The error has since been corrected and McGee has been left with a loss for his record. While the fighter threw an identical number of total strikes to his opponent (109 to Strickland's 104), he didn't show enough control to win the first and last frames. In addition, his 11 takedown attempts were blocked while he allowed Strickland to land three. McGee drops to 19-7 (7-6 UFC) as a result of the lost decision.

Loses to Ben Saunders via unanimous decision
January 16, 2017
McGee lost to Ben Saunders via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night 103 in Phoenix on Sunday.
McGee clearly won the third round of this fight, but didn't do enough in the first two frames to take home the decision. McGee tried to get his pressure game going early, but was kept at bay by the hard body kicks of Saunders, and was unable to consistently use his wrestling. McGee is the kind of fighter who gets wins due to his ability to stay in the fight and press forward, but his inability to get the finish leaves him at the whim of the judges more often than not. He has now lost three of his last five fights.
