A.J. McKee | Esther Lin, MMA FightingPatricio Pitbull and A.J. McKee will soon collide in the biggest featherweight fight in Bellator history. The champ Pitbull was the first fighter to appear at the official weigh-ins for Bellator 263, which takes place Saturday at The Forum in Los Angeles, and he successfully came in under championship weight at 144.5 pounds. A.J. McKee would also successfully make weight later, but not without issue. On McKee’s first attempt, the undefeated fighter came in at 145.2 pounds, 0.2 pounds over the featherweight limit with no allowance for a title bout. However, he was given an additional 90 minutes to attempt to make the weight and 145 on the dot in his second try. With that, Saturday’s main event is official.
