AJ McKee Says He’ll Defeat Patricio Pitbull Again, Then Take Belt From Brother, Patricky Pitbull

AJ McKee plans to destroy the Pitbull brothers’ legacy.

McKee, the new Bellator featherweight champion and No. 1 ranked pound-for-pound fighter of the promotion, is going to hold a rematch against one of the best Bellator fighters, Patricio “Pitbull” Freire.

Freire is a former double champion of Bellator. However, he lost the featherweight title against McKee and vacated the lightweight title to focus on a featherweight title fight and rematch against McKee and for his brother, Patricky, to win this title against Peter Queally.

At the press conference, McKee said that he is going to destroy Freire in the rematch and, after that, aims to earn the lightweight belt too.

“I’m always respectful, but when you cross that line, that’s the line — things got to get dealt with,” McKee said.

“…I’m the champ, so I’d like to carry myself differently. But the first fight was like picking at the brother, you know what I mean? And this fight, I’m just looking forward to going out there and really putting on a show, man. I’m looking forward to being the champ-champ, so his brother’s got the belt — a ‘Pitbull’ is a ‘Pitbull’ to me.”

“To be a champion, you must beat a champion though. Remember that. … I beat once. I’ll beat your brother and you again.”

Pitbull said that McKee could only dream about that.

“What do you mean dream? It’s going to happen, bro,” McKee shot back. “It’s going to happen. It’s inevitable… I’m going to destroy the ‘Pitbull’ legacy.”
