UFC Middleweight Court McGee

A middleweight scrap between Court McGee (Pictured) and Constantinos Philippou has been added to the “UFC on FX: Alves vs. Kampmann” roster. The show takes place March 3rd inside the Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia.

McGee is victorious in both of his bouts since capturing “The Ultimate Fighter 11” tournament in June 2010.

Philippou, on the other hand, beat Jorge Rivera at UFC 133 in August and followed it up by knocking out Jared Hamman earlier this month at UFC 140.

In addition to featuring the opening round of their four-man flyweight tournament, a critical welterweight shootout between Thiago Alves and Martin Kampmann will headline the FX broadcast.

The event will be held Saturday afternoon in Australia. Due to the time zone differences, it has been reported the main card will air live in North America on Friday evening.

Here is the show’s updated lineup:

James Te Huna vs. Aaron Rosa

Constantinos Philippou vs. Court McGee

Joseph Benavidez vs. Yasuhiro Urushitani

Ian McCall vs. Demetrious Johnson

Thiago Alves vs. Martin Kampmann
