AJ McKee has a bright future in MMA and has become a big star in Bellator. The now featherweight champion sees himself as the Floyd Mayweather of MMA.

The featherweight Bellator MMA champion sees the sport as a business. Much like Floyd Mayweather did during his boxing career.

“This is business. This is a lifeline of business not only for myself but for my father and for my 4-year-old little brother. We’re talking not second generation, but the third generation of fighters coming up,” McKee said in an interview with CBS Sports.

“Like I’ve said from Day 1: I’m the Floyd Mayweather of MMA. Take it or leave it. Be happy with it, argue about it. The proof is in the pudding. I had to go through and look at my record. 18 fights. I’ve fought 33 rounds and haven’t lost a round yet. I’m kind of excited about that. That’s kind of gangster to me. That’s some saucy stats.”

AJ McKee’s contract with Bellator MMA ends soon and the champion is going to be ready to renegotiate. He has huge goals for his career financial.

“I’m excited to see what Bellator’s future holds. $100 million is my goal. I want to make that 100 [million]. This is a bigger, better and more evolved sport… by the time I’m 50-0, definitely will need 100 [million].”

It will be interesting to see if AJ McKee will be able to make 100 million in his MMA career. The sport is famously a tough one to become a millionaire in unless you’re a big star.
