40-year-old MMA vet and IFL champ Antonio McKee, reported to The Savage Dog Show that he has been offered a four-fight deal with the UFC. It was later confirmed by sources close to the fighter that he indeed has signed to contract.
McKee who has won his past 11 fights, was once dubbed the “world’s most boring fighter,” has put a stop to that nickname. He’s past two fights have been anything but boring. His latest fight of just last week at MFC 26, was TKO doctor stoppage against Brazilian Luciano Azevedo. McKee stated that he would retire if he didn’t finish Azevedo in a bang-up finish. Lucky for us, he did.
“Mandingo” has not yet received a date or an opponent for his debut, but he said one thing is for sure;
“It’s going down,” McKee said. “In the event that when I’m matched up with an opponent, I’m going to be tested, and I’m sure it would look real good to give me an opponent to beat me, and shut me up, (so the UFC) can kick me out. Or, I’m going to surprise a lot of people.”
McKee currently holds an impressive 25-3-2 overall record.
