Antonio McKee Doesn’t Have to Cash Out His Roth IRA Just Yet, You Guys

(Fight starts at 2:45. VidProps: YouTube/ ZombieProphetMMA)

Alas, we’ll never know if Antonio McKee really would have made good on his threat to retire if his MFC lightweight title match against Luciano Azevedo went to decision on Friday. McKee, who’d promised to beat Azevedo like he cheated him at dice, needed just three minutes, 11 seconds to stop the 26-year-old Brazilian, after gashing him open with a pair of nasty right elbows on (where else?) the ground.

Give McKee some credit, he doesn’t look like a boring fighter here. Though this fight is marred by an early low blow by Azevedo, McKee slams him to the mat immediately after the restart — “Boom-shaka-laka!” yells the always understated Michael Schiavello, at that point — and goes to work with punches and elbows. As soon as Azevedo sees his own blood – “Blood is absolutely pissing out!” shouts Schiavello, ever elegant – the fight is pretty much over. After that, it takes McKee an uncharacteristic extra minute on the mic before he starts saying crazy stuff. Then he calls out some UFC guys.


Antonio McKee Wagers MMA Career on MFC 26 Title Bout Not Going to Scorecards

("You see these? I’m gonna beat you without even hitting you with them. THAT’S how good I am.")

If we’ve learned anything in the past couple years, it’s not to believe fighters when they say, "If I                , I will retire." 

Maybe we need to institute another Cage Potato ban.

According to Maximum Fighting Championship lightweight champion Antonio McKee, his claim is different than those of guys like CroCop, Kurt Pellegrino, Quinton JacksonJuanito Ibarra (I know he’s not a fighter, but I’m still pissed off that he welched on his retirement) and Georges St-Pierre as he claims he’s serious when he says he will walk away from the sport if his September 10 MFC 26 bout in Brandon, Manitoba with Luciano Azevedo goes to the judges’ scorecards.
