TUF 11 winner Court McGee is headed to Canada, where he will face Alex Garcia at UFC Moncton.
The UFC’s debut in Moncton, New Brunswick continues to grow. The promotion announced late Thursday on social media that TUF alumni Court McGee would be taking on Alex Garcia at the event. The bout will represent McGee’s first trip to the octagon since November of last year, in a fight against Sean Strickland that was originally announced as a draw until a scoring error resulted in McGee taking the loss.

McGee (18–7) won the eleventh season of The Ultimate Fighter in 2010, beating Kris McCray at the finale. Competing as a middleweight, McGee went on to win his first three bouts in the promotion, before dropping back-to-back fights against Costas Philippou and Nick Ring. That precipitated a drop to welterweight, where McGee has built a 4-4 record.
In his last two outings, McGee has dropped decisions to Strickland (the aforementioned scoring error) and Ben Saunders.
Alex Garcia (15–5) most recently lost a unanimous decision against Ryan LaFlare at UFC Atlantic City in April. The Dominican native has been trading wins and losses all the way back to 2014.
