Dead Man Fighting

It does not matter how far you have fallen, it is never too late to get back up and turn things around.  The incredible story of UFC fighter, Court McGee, is living proof of this.  Before finding mixed martial arts things were not going well for Court.  He had fallen deep into the depths of addiction and had all but given up on life.  After being thrown out of his parents’ home, Court moved into a small trailer and continued down his path of destruction.  He finally hit rock bottom when he overdosed and his heart stopped.  He was technically dead.  In what can only be described as a miracle, the paramedics were able to revive Court and give him a second chance at life.  It was at this point that Court made the decision to turn his life around. 

Court McGee threw himself into martial arts as if his life depended on it, and in reality it probably did.  He replaced a harmful addiction with a positive addiction and started on the road to recovery.  In June of 2010, Court won The Ultimate Fighter reality television series and earned himself a six-figure contract to fight in the world’s premier mixed martial arts organization, the UFC.  Through the incredible power of martial arts, Court has transformed his life.  His story is living proof that no matter how deep and dark your struggles, it is never too late to make a change.  Listen to Court recount his inspirational story below.
