Court McGee is set to make his return to the Octagon. He is scheduled to take on Canadian fighter Jesse Bongfeldt at UFC 131 in Vancouver on June 11.
MMAWeekly.com sources confirmed the bout late Friday night. The organization later confirmed agreements are in place for the fight with an update on Twitter.
McGee (13-1) will make his third appearance in the promotion and is yet to taste defeat since winning the popular reality series. The winner of “The Ultimate Fighter Season 12” was last seen taking on Ryan Jensen at UFC 121 in Anaheim, Calif., winning the bout via submission in the late stages of the third round.
Bongfeldt (21-7-1) will make his second appearance in the Octagon after fighting Rafael Natal to a draw at UFC 124: St. Pierre vs. Koscheck 2. Although the result of his last fight was dead even, the fighter out of Kenora, Ontario, Canada, will look to get a big win against a fighter with some notoriety in McGee.
UFC 131 is scheduled to take place at the Rogers Arena.
