    I mean I know he crushed Melonchon but Court Mcgee's only losses are arguably to Jeremy Horn and Phillipou. (That Nick Ring decision was a travesty.) If Kelvin can pull off a win, especially a stoppage I think he almost instantly gets himself a top 10 opponent and becomes one of the most interesting TUF winners in a long time, but I expect a lopsided UD for Court and hopefully a bigger jump in competition.

    I really don't like these grown men vs. kids fights. Kelvin should be given more time to grow, IMO.

    Also about that [email protected] Cody vs. Stout. Cody is the only true multi divisional fighter in the UFC right now.

    Kelvin's a big boy and I fully expect him to give McGee the fight of his life.

    Mini Cain Velasquez is a beast, don't worry he will handle Court with ease.

    If the UFC was based on looks Kelvin would be fighting GSP but I jsut don't think he has the fight IQ yet. He is gonna get picked apart on a cerebral level.

    They certainly could have given him an easier fight. I'm favoring McGee here.

    McGee is a tough fighter, he kicks alot to the body, Gastelum can take him down right off a body kick, and do his thing on the ground till the fight is over, if Gastelum knocks McGee out, he will jump in rank rather quickly. Kelvin is very talented

    Damn, that's a huge step-up in competition. I liked the Paulo Thiago fight more to see where Kevin is at, too bad Paulo had to pull out.
    I don't think he will finish McGee, maybe a close decision win.

    But my money is on Court winning his third decision in a row at WW.

    ps: is it becoming a thing to match the TUF winners against each other?

    Shut your butthole, hater. McGee has beaten the crap out of everyone put in front of him sans Phillpou. He landed the most strikes in 170 history vs. Neer. Kelvin barely beat Huggable Hall and beat up a strikeforce challengers vet, whose doing the favor?

    I came into this topic to say this exactly. I wouldn't say they are on paper on entirely different levels.

    I wouldn't exactly call Court "The Wolves"...

    Gastelum will beat him.
