Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

McKee Stripped of Belt and Will Be Fired After Missing Weight for MFC Title Defense Tomorrow Night

(“I didn’t like working for the David Duke of MMA anyway.”)

Antonio McKee is really limiting his employment options these day.

The 41-year-old Las Vegas native today weighed in seven pounds over the 155 pound limit for his MFC 32 title defense against Brian Cobb tomorrow night in Edmonton, Alberta. As a result of the infraction “Mandingo” will be fined 20 percent of his purse stripped of his title and will be let go from the remainder of his contract with the Maximum Fighting Championship.

The fight has now been changed to a three-round non-title affair.

If he wanted to push back, since he has nothing to lose at this point besides his pay for the fight, McKee could just hop on a plane and leave the MFC in the lurch for their main event tomorrow night, since reps from the promotion already announced it’s the last time he’ll fight under their banner.

Seven pounds is inexcusable, especially for a veteran like McKee, but the guy is 41 years old and cuts a lot of weight. Maybe his body has had enough of the torture of weight cutting he’s inflicted on it for decades while he dropped dozens of pounds to wrestle and fight.

Unfortunately for Antonio when this door closes it’s unlikely that another one will open up for him any time soon considering that when he was dropped by the UFC following his UFC 125 loss to Jacob Volkmann he called Zuffa “the new slave masters” and the UFC “the new slave plantation.” Just wait and see what he has to say about MFC president Mark Pavelich, who took him back after vowing to never rehire him when he vacated the title to fight for the UFC. Whoever he compares him to, we’re guessing it will be someone with a penchant for wearing white hoods and burning crosses. *sigh*

@“the new slave plantation” hahah never heard that one before.
Zuffa is not about slavery, its more like indentured servitude.

"I’m eatin’ doughnuts and drinkin’ soda pops and eatin’ Kentucky Fried Chicken and grape soda and apple pie, getting’ ready.”
Sounds like the words of a man that wants to keep race/racism out of the discussion.. lol. That's from the same article in which he's calling zuffa the new slave owners and ufc the new slave plantation...

When a black person uses terminology like "the new slave plantation" to describe a situation, they are making it a race issue. Sorry. He should have chosen his words more carefully if he didn't want it to be construed that way.

Fucking retarded. His comments had nothing to do with race it was a comparison on how the UFC treats its fighters. Read the link and realize it was taken out of context then and now. The only time he even uses the word race is to say it isn't the race card.

I'm not a fan of black men since I'm white, but I'm all over the black booty mamas. I got arrested four times beat up by cops & street thugs for hitting on black chicks. african woman are fulla pure magic. black guys are born for blondes, & white men were born for black magic. I like em juicy & rare. full of fire on the inside.

You know what they say... The darker you are, the harder it is to cut weight!

He'd get more love if he rep'd his true native, Ireland. Antoni "O" McKee?? Come on!! But for real, this guy really needs to take off the race colored glasses and quit perpetuating stereotypes. You got fired cause you lost to Jacob "JV" Volkmann, who I'm pretty sure is Bill Nye's illegitimate son. You know as they say though, Dana White's trash is Bjourn Rebney's treasure....

Could Mckee have come in heavy as he already has some alternative plans to fight soon in another promotion? What an easy way to dodge a fight, if you where in shape, had already burned your employer once, and got a phone call last minute, just saying...

When did McKee join the Blackzillas?
amsterdamheavy- January 26, 2012 at 3:55 pm
Hell yes - Ive heard him refer to himself as "Mandingo Warrior" as well
noname- January 26, 2012 at 3:49 pm
