AJ McKee vs. Patricio Pitbull 2 fight preview for Bellator 277
The last time McKee and Pitbull met, McKee won by submission in the first round. Winning by submission in the first round has become a habit for McKee, he’s won three consecutive fights this way. McKee said he wants to “make it so Pitbull never wants to fight him again” in a CBS sports interview. Pitbull is out for revenge and has experience on his side but McKee is undefeated and the bigger fighter tonight. McKee has made it known that he plans to win another first-round submission, making 5 in total for him if he pulls it off. McKee also has a homecourt advantage being a California native so expect the crowd to be heavily in his favor.
Expect full-on Rocky IV vibes tonight in the co-main event. Nemkov is favored to win against his American opponent Anderson. Nemkov is Bellators second-ranked pound-for-pound-fighter and the current light-heavyweight champ. To keep his belt he has to stop Anderson’s TKO streak. In Anderson’s last fight he easily beat the former champion, Ryan Bader, by TKO in the first round. Expect this to be a fight to remember.
