AJ McKee advanced to the finals of the Bellator Featherweight World Grand Prix and Patricio Pitbull isn’t too impressed with what he saw at Bellator 253.
Pitbull, after Bellator 253, called McKee “easy money” on Twitter:
Guy that loves to get guillotined after controlling fights leaves his neck exposed after starting to gain control of the fight. Great fight IQ. And the other fool dared to say I chose the easiest bracket. #Bellator253— Patricio Freire (@PatricioPitbull) November 20, 2020
The toughest tournament fight will be Sanchez. McKee is easy money. #Bellator253— Patricio Freire (@PatricioPitbull) November 20, 2020
McKee heard about Pitbull’s tweets and in the post-fight press conference, stated the he is coming for Pitbull’s featherweight and lightweight titles.
“It wasn’t a guillotine, stupid. It had nothing to do with his neck,” McKee said (via Dave Doyle & Nolan King of MMA Junkie). “It was a shoulder crank. You’re supposed to be Brazilian. You don’t know (expletive) about jiu-jitsu, apparently. I can’t wait to beat his ass, honestly. This (expletive) is long overdue. He takes it personal, but it’s nothing personal. He had a great career, but the ’45, ’55 title – I want it back to back. Period.”
