So not only is Pitbull too jacked while not being black enough but now black fighters are paid less due to the color of their skin.
So wait a minute, AJ, a kid who has never won a tournament and never won a world title has as many if not more accolades than the reigning FW/LW champion who has won two Bellator tournaments and made it to three tournaments finals before the current GP. Pitbull also has won the FW world title two times, the LW title one time and has seven title defenses. So the kid who has been brought along slowly by choice has as many accolades?
There is a reason nobody has heard of or can remember the first eleven fighters AJ beat in Bellator, the promotion let him crush cans to mature and develop his skills. Bellator signed him before he had a single pro fight. How many other fighers has Bellator allowed to crush so many cans and develop so slowely under contract with them? Not many.
Antonio sounds ridiculous playing the race card in the buildup to this fight. Dude must watch a lot of MSNBC at night or something.
I’m a huge fan of AJ’s skills but he only has 2,400 twitter followers and he has only been fighting tough guys for three years now. Bellator sucks at social media and it looks like his camp does too by those twitter followers.
Great job playing the race card Antonio when AJ has not even cracked 3k twitter followers and Bellator can’t get 5k people in the building while at the same time they often do the same ratings as infomercial reruns. Yeah that makes a lot of sense.
"I’ve been in the game a long time, as you know, and I’ve had my own set of issues with this sport,” said Antonio McKee, who trains his son. “I’m not happy with what Black fighters are being paid. I’ve been very fortunate and I’m very direct. I always tell the truth and a lot of people can’t handle it.
“But as a Black athlete, I don’t feel [A.J.] is paid enough. If it were Randy Couture’s son, he’d have made more money. If it was Chuck Liddell’s. Royce Gracie’s son made more money than my son. … This kid is 17-0, he’s fighting on his home turf, and he has as many if not more accolades as Pitbull. But why are we talking about money?”
