Biography(references)After graduating from the high school, he attended Weber State University for a spell before dropping out due to lack of interest. In the early 2000s, McGee started taking painkillers in an attempt to find relief from an injury and began hanging out with the wrong crowd, a situation that would lead McGee to become addicted to heroin and cocaine. Following an overdose in which McGee was declared clinically deceased for eight minutes, he was resuscitated and as a result of the damage caused from temporary death to the brain, he had to learn how to walk and talk again. After rehab and getting himself cleaned up from substance abuse, McGee returned to Layton High School to become an assistant wrestling coach. He later picked up Brazilian jiu-jitsu and boxing, and eventually transitioned into competing in MMA professionally.
Fighter Trivia(references)McGee and his wife Chelsea have three sons, Isaac, Crew Charles and Nash John . The second son's middle name was taken from McGee's friend and Ultimate Fighter coach, Chuck Liddell's first name. After suffering an injury to his clavicle and elbow, McGee became dependent to painkillers, which he later mixed with alcohol.
