A middleweight bout has been added to UFC on FX 2 in Australia with former Ultimate Fighter winner Court McGee taking on Costa Philippou.
The new bout was announced by the UFC on Tuesday.
Since winning the 11th season of The Ultimate Fighter, Court McGee has gone two for two in his UFC career.
The Utah native submitted Ryan Jensen in his first fight after winning the reality show, and most recently shut down Dongi Yang by decision in New Orleans to up his Octagon record to 2-0.
To make it three in a row, however, he’ll have a tough test ahead in Matt Serra and Ray Longo product Costa Philippou.
After a short notice fight to kick off his UFC career, Philippou has come back with two very strong performances, back-to-back.
Philippou defeated crafty veteran Jorge Rivera at UFC 133 in August, and then put a beatdown on Jared Hamman at UFC 140 in Toronto just a couple of weeks ago. Now he meets a former Ultimate Fighter winner for his chance to make the biggest step up thus far in his UFC career.
