The ‘Mercenary’ joins the podcast! UNLEASHED welcomes decorated MMA fighter and former Bellator MMA Featherweight World Champion A.J. McKee from Long Beach, California. In conversation with The Dingo and Danny, the 27-year-old details his record-setting rise to fame and current plans to take his legacy to the next level.
Hailing from Long Beach, California, Antonio De Carlo McKee Jr. took the world of professional MMA by storm. After making his debut on the Bellator promotion in 2015, the master of a diverse range of fighting styles etched his name into history by riding a record victory of 18 wins (13 by stoppage!) into a shot at the Bellator MMA Featherweight World Champion title. And take the shot, he did! Defeating Patricio “Pitbull” Freire earned McKee the 145-pound belt and a $1 million payout. Far from finished, McKee recently moved up one weight class to the Bellator MMA Lightweight division and wants to make a run for his second career title.
