McGee vs. Yang Wiki Update Wiki

In the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 25, Ultimate Fighter winner Court "The Crusher" McGee took on Dongi "The Ox" Yang in a middleweight fight. McGee entered the fight at 2-0 in the UFC and 13-1 overall. Yang came into the bout 1-1 in the UFC and 10-1 overall.


Yang landed his right hand early, followed by the fighters exchanging low kicks. The pair appeared hesitant to fully commit to their attacks with only single strikes being sent back and forth. Yang's low kicks repeatedly crashed into McGee's lead leg, perhaps the most effective strikes of the round. Yang caught a low kick and barely missed with a big right-hook counter. Yang again looked to counter with his right but whiffed once more. The first round was competitive.


The fighters turned up the heat in the second round, with McGee in particular looking to land a monster left hook that Yang was just out of range for. McGee clinched up but Yang easily gained control of the situation and shrugged McGee off. A nice left hand by Yang, McGee then clinched and looked in prime position for a takedown, but Yang expertly defended to keep the fight standing. Another relatively even round.


Shortly into the third round a small trickle of blood formed under Yang's nose, though the fight remained relatively even and uneventful. Two minutes in, "The Ox" landed a big left that sent Yang stumbling backwards. Yang was around to McGee's back but couldn't hold the fight down. McGee seemed to recover quickly and it was Yang who's face looked to show more damage and exhaustion. McGee took the fight down directly into mount with a minute remaining in a sign of how tired Yang had become. Yang was able to get back to his feet, though with his mouth wide open and his feet dragging was an easy target for McGee's punches. Another takedown from McGee and then an flurry of punches and elbows, capped off by a top-side guillotine choke attempt as time expired and McGee clearly in control.


The judges scored the fight 30-27, 29-28, and 30-28, declaring the winner by unanimous decision, Court McGee.
