A.J Mckee became featherweight champion by dethroning long-time champion, Patricio Freire. He finished the former champion via amazing submission after hurting him with a high kick.
As soon as he became champion, he claimed to the best featherweight of his time. He wanted to participate in a cross-promotion fight between him and UFC champion, but Dana White is unwilling to do that.
A.J’ is so confident that he will remain undefeated against UFC featherweights, he is willing to offer fighters to go to his gym and fight for $1 million dollars
“Come down to Body Shop,” McKee said. “We all know I just made a million. All you UFC fighters, PFL, wherever you at. If you feel you are the best 145-pounder in the world, I got a million dollars cash money. Come test it.”
“I’m the best 145-pound fighter – not only the best 145-pound fighter – I am the best fighter in the world,” McKee continued. “And if you don’t know, you will know momentarily.”
McKee is an outstanding fighter with great striking and great ground game simultaneously. He remains undefeated with a record 18 victories and zero losses.
He started his professional career in Bellator and earned all 18 victories in this promotion. He is only 26 years old and already dominates the division, but he also plans to move up in the lightweight to become another double champion.
