Veteran Welterweight Matt Brown Returns To The Octagon Against Court McGee

Longtime welterweight fighter, Matt Brown, will make his highly anticipated comeback to the cage on May 13th after more than a year off.

Brown, famously known as “The Immortal,” will face off against fellow veteran, Court McGee, in what promises to be an exciting and closely contested bout.

Brown, who has a 23-19 record, made the announcement on a recent episode of The Fighter vs. The Writer podcast.

“Coming back, I’m going to destroy some faces. Court, I’ve hung out with him before, he’s a terrific person, an excellent rival. In some ways, our backgrounds are comparable for both of us. We both took too much. He has truly accepted that. So even though I have a lot of respect for the man, I’m ready to walk in there and elbow him in the face.”

Brown, who has been fighting since 2008, has a promotional record of 16-13 and is still working hard at the age of 42. His last fight was in March 2023, when he lost a tight decision to Bryan Barberena. Brown had the option to fight a younger opponent, but instead chose to take on McGee, despite the challenge.

McGee, who won The Ultimate Fighter Season 11 in 2010, has a 21-11 record and is coming off a knockout defeat to Jeremiah Wells in June 2022. However, he has won two of his past three fights, and his most significant victory was a split decision over Robert Whittaker in the welterweight division.

The UFC Fight Night event on May 13th will also feature a ranked light heavyweight matchup between Anthony Smith and Johnny Walker as the main event. Additionally, Jessica-Rose Clark will face Tainara Lisboa in a women’s bantamweight fight. More details are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
