A.J. McKee Wagered With Dana White As A Kid: He's "Gonna Owe Me Lunch"

AJ McKee is one victory away from winning the Bellator Featherweight World Grand Prix, Bellator featherweight championship and a possible lunch with UFC President Dana White.

The undefeated McKee says he made a bet with White when he was a teenager and White may soon have to pay up.

“Dana knows what’s up. Dana’s gonna owe me lunch soon,” McKee recently told MMA Junkie Radio. “I had a bet with him that I was gonna be a world champ when I was a little kid. He probably don’t remember, but Dana’s gonna owe me lunch as soon as I get my belt.”

A semi-final round fight between featherweight champion Patricio Pitbull and Emmanuel Sanchez will determine who meets McKee in the finals.

McKee says winning the featherweight world grand prix will make him one of MMA’s elite fighters.

“The caliber of fighter that I am and where I’m at in my career … I feel like after the tournament I shouldn’t be paid anything under a million dollars period,” McKee said. “That would be 18-0, 11-plus finishes. If we go stats, we’re all professional athletes. Michael Jordan has some of the best. Lebron James got some of the best stats. For me, it’s all about the stats. I feel like, with the accolades and the things I’m accomplishing and where I’m at in my career and where I’m headed, I’m one of those elite MMA fighters. I’d put my skills against anybody in the world. It doesn’t matter.”
