A welterweight bout between "The Ultimate Fighter 11" winner Court McGee (13-3 MMA, 3-2 UFC) and veteran Josh Neer (33-12-1 MMA, 6-8 UFC) is targeted for UFC 157 in February.

A source close to the event today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) verbal agreements are in place for the fight. MMAFighting.com first reported the matchup.

UFC officials haven't formally announced the fight.

UFC 157 takes place Feb. 23 at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. The event's main card, which is headlined by the first-ever women's fight in the promotion (champ Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche), airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.

McGee vs. Neer likely will be part of the prelims.

Neer is reaching the end of his career. McGee shouldn't have much problem with him.

I am going but I am already having mixed feelings about this card.
With female main event I really was expecting a stacked card I know they have 6 more fights to announce

With kos being one
And rumor or Davis vs malgahaes as another

I was just expecting more of a card.
I hope nelson knocks out meathead quick and faces carwin at this event

I was thinking the same. He wasn't a giant mw by any stretch but this might be a tough cut. When did he announce he was even dropping weight? I must have missed that one

I didnt realize Court was making the drop to WW. This is a great fight for his debut at 170

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.
