AJ McKee Wants To Be The Floyd Mayweather Jr. Of MMA


AJ McKee is currently undefeated as a professional MMA fighter, with all eight of his wins as a pro coming in the Bellator MMA banner.

While McKee has a lot of goals to accomplish as an MMA fighter, the biggest may be to become the Floyd Mayweather Jr. of MMA.

“This is just the beginning,” McKee told MMA Junkie. “That’s one record of many records I plan on breaking. I plan on being the youngest champ ever. Jon Jones was 23 when he did it, so I’ve got a full year to beat that coming from April. (I also want to keep) being undefeated, keep that 0 and be the (Floyd) Mayweather of MMA. Just keep breaking records.”

McKee is quickly rising to become a top contender in the featherweight division, which is currently ruled by Patricio Freire.

The featherweight star also has a few fights remaining on his contract with Bellator MMA, but the fighter is happy with the place he currently calls home.

“I’ve got a couple more fights left on this contract,” he said. “I’ll finish out my contract and see what Bellator has to offer and how we can go about those top-five fights. I love Bellator. Bellator takes care of me and is treating me well. I don’t look forward to leaving unless there’s some real big misunderstandings, but Bellator is very understanding, so I don’t see that happening at all. Bellator is my home. I don’t plan on leaving.”

Although he doesn’t have another fight scheduled right now, the undefeated fighter is coming off of a win over Dominic Mazzotta at Bellator 178.
