    From the couple interviews I’ve heard McKee seems apologetic that he’s missed weight for this fight.
    Says he tried to make weight and got to 159.5 or something then had health probs and decided it was in his best interest to be healthy than to push his body to dangerous levels.

    i wonder if hdnet has an out in mfc contract, ive been a supporter in the past the product has been very weak as of late, i think the MFC is gonna have to realize that being on tv is not enough to attract quality fighters anymore

    Pavelich is out for himself and not the fighters. He is bad for the sport. I love how he is burning all his bridges. Its only a matter of time before he cant sign any legit fighters!

    I think for all the victories Mckee has accomplished for the MFC that should have been considered. Pavelich has his thumb up his ass and his pockets open to be filled. Mckee’s talent will succeed with or without Pavelich whether it be fighting coaching or promoting. All fighter’s beware of Pavelich and Dana the demons of the sport that manipulate and control

    Honestly McKee is a warrior, he would give anyone a tough fight, but he is what he is a wrestler nothing more he’s not a guy that put buts in the seats, he should train fighters cause. I think he is good at that

    Bar minimum a fighter has to make weight. Their carelessness can put a promotion at risk . This is live tv. If a fighter cant make weight , then they should move up a weight class.
