Court McGee vs. Claudio Silva targeted for May 22 Fight Night event – MMA Root

Longtime UFC welterweight veteran Court McGee will return to fight Claudio Silva on May 22, several people with knowledge of the booking told MMA Fighting. Ag. Fight was the first to report the match.

The UFC has yet to officially announce the location of the Fight Night event map. Former UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt will face Rob Font in a five-round headliner.

McGee (19-10) is hitting the wall after three straight losses since 2019, losing decisions to Carlos Condit, Sean Brady and Diego Lima. The 36-year-old veteran who defeated Robert Whittaker and Josh Neer has a 3-7 record in his last 10 games in the Octagon.

Silva (14-2) recently suffered his first defeat in nearly 13 years when he lost a decision to James Krause in October 2020. Hannibal won all five UFC fights before losing, including victories over Leon Edwards and Nordin Taleb.
