A new king in the Bellator featherweight division has been crowned when undefeated A.J Mckee defeated the featherweight & lightweight king Patricio “Pitbull” Freire with an early head kick & submitting Freire with a guillotine choke at 1:57 of round 1.
Mckee has also been crowned the winner of the 16-man featherweight Grand Prix tournament winner and earned the 1$ million-dollar prize while also conquering the unbeaten winning streak of Patricio Freire. “All my dreams are coming true. This is amazing,” McKee said in front of his raucous hometown crowd at The Forum in Los Angeles, California. Destiny has been fulfilled for Mckee from training at a young age with his father, MMA veteran Antonio Mckee, with a perfect performance and a perfect win against one of the best MMA athlete that the MMA world has to offer.
In the post-fight interview, the newly crowned champ offers a 1$ million-dollar bet to all featherweights across all promotions to a super fight against him. “I am the best 145-pounder in the world, whether it’s UFC, ONE FC, PFL, I don’t care who it is,” McKee told reporters after putting Pitbull to sleep on Saturday night at The Forum. “I’ve got a $1 million cash in my bank. I’m willing to put that up against anybody else.
Is this the perfect performance by a title contender, or do you have another fight that showed a better performance by the title contender?
