The Brazilian-born fighter is hardworking and dedicated as well as charismatic which makes him popular with fans. Pitbull is also a skilled grappler who started practicing judo at a young age and continued onto jiu-jitsu when he became more serious about MMA competition.
A.J McKee is a mixed martial arts fighter from Northern Ireland. A.J has always been the smallest in his family which lead to him being bullied and picked on as a child. He was also somber and introverted as a child because he was battling against depression, anxiety, ADHD and dyslexia. His older brother suggested that he try some MMA training because it could be useful to defend himself in the future.
A.J had an amateur fight at 17 years old when he was 18 and then became a professional at 21 years old after winning six amateur titles. McKee has been fighting full-time in Bellator for over three years now.
