Bellator 147’s AJ McKee: ‘I use dad’s shadow as motivation’

MMAOddsBreaker’s Nick Barnes speaks with Bellator 147 featherweight Nick Barnes as he prepares for his upcoming preliminary card fight this Friday night (December 4, 2015) against JT Donaldson at San Jose State University in San Jose, California.

McKee is the son of former MFC lightweight champion Antonio McKee, and he’s off to a hot start in his professional career, fueling his training by trying to get out from under his father’s looming shadow:

“I use [my dad’s shadow] as motivation. If anyone’s taking a fight against me, they know what they’re up against so they feel they have something they can bring to the table to beat me. Honestly, that puts fear in me so it just drives me to work harder and just keep pushing myself to the limit. “
