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.Read More ADD COMMENTS (20) DIGG THIS
