Personally, I think Court takes this one. The guy's tough as nails and has good technique too. (I was sure he was unconscious when he took that knee from Tavares, but he got right up.) He keeps getting better every fight. I wasn't that impressed with McCray's last fight. I mean he got the job done, but I didn't see it as a very decisive win.
What do you say?

All 4 semi finalist had amazing chins...so i dont see a KO here. I think Kris has better striking not technicality great but he lands more shots than Court. I also think he is stronger, court is a better wrestler but i don't think its enough to overcome Kris's strength.


Kris on points

Kris didn't impress me at all, to get to the finale was amazing for him.

I think Court will win decisively, but I still like Savage and wish him the best.

Same here. McCray has really survived on nothing but heart and an incredible chin, but you also have to remember that he has fought 5 out of 6 weeks on the show. I personally think it's hilarious to see that two guys who already LOST once on the show are the finalists. The wildcared thing was a ridiculous idea to be honest. Don't get me wrong, I like Kris and Court both, but if you lose on the show, you shouldn't advance. Nick Ring beat Court fighting with a messed up knee, and would have undoubtedly won the whole show now that I think about it. Kris has gotten some extremely lucky victories, laying otop of Noke with Mazzagatti reffing, beating Uscola who really shouldn't even be anywhere near a cage, and out gameplanning a horribly timid Josh Bryant who already beat McCray to begin with.

In my opinion the fights for this season have NOT been that impressive. I think the only KO was Yager beating Blanchard, who fights at 155, and had a horrible ankle. The only two actually decent fighters that would do anyting in the UFC are Nick Ring, and Kyle Noke if he learned how to wrestle.

I am going with Court on this one. He has a never give up attitute and I like that in a fighter. I do expect to see a different Kris McCray in this fight though. From what Dana was saying, Kris fought every Tuesday for about 4 or 5 weeks. By the semifinal, you know he was a tired fighter and I am sure he was a little banged up.

I think that I'll go with Court Mcgee in this one. Kris McCray has slow hands in my opinion and he seemed to be a little sloppy in the stand up against Bryant, although it did get the job done. I think that Court is faster and has more technical stand up and that should make a difference when they exchange. On the ground, I'm not sure how it will play out. Court is a decent wrestler himself with solid submissions while McCray has decent tools on the ground as well.

I think that Court Mcgee will take this by decision.

Court. Mcray never really did anything IMO. He was bigger than noke and noke just looked terrible in that fight, he lost to Bryant. beat Uscola who I think was one of the worst fighters in that show, and his fight with Bryant again just did not impress me. I think that fight could have gone either way.

Court on the other hand beat Ring IMO and I disagree on the judges decision and it should have gone to a third round, Submitted Hammortree, Submitted Tavares, and beat Seth in the opening fights. He impressed me a lot more than a lot of the other fighters and I think he looks better as a fighter than Mcray.

I dont think either fighter will gas, they have had a few months to get up to speed cardio wise. I still think McCray will take it down and 'control the fight'. If he stands with McGee he might be in trouble.
