The new official Bellator MMA rankings are out following Bellator 263 and AJ Mckee is sitting at the top of this new pound-for-pound list.
Bellator 263 took place this past weekend on July 31, and in the main event, the fans saw the battle between Aj Mckee and Patricio Pitbull. Mckee amazed everyone and defeated Pitbull only in 90 seconds to become the new Featherweight champion.
AJ Mckee made Pitbull submit in the very first round to win the $1 million 145-pound Grand Prix tournament. With this win, Mckee became the top fighter of Bellator and also climbed to the first position in the new pound-for-pound list.
Currently, Pitbull is in the no. 2 position which means he is the no. 1 contender to challenge for the Featherweight championship. Patricio is still one of Bellator’s top featherweight fighters. He was holding this title since May 2019 and got a knockout victory over Michael Chandler to win this belt.
