    A few recent threads, ok, more than a few, are focused on greatness and is it quality or quantity that should be the indicator. So here is a slightly different take considering this thread is NOT GOAT targeted but just thought provoking...........my opinion......AJ McKee has beaten up a bunch of guys who between them don't even have a single UFC event under their belt. Guys like Benson Henderson who did well in the UFC are now Bellator stepping stones but McKee has not fought any of those. This is NOT a knock against Bellator fightrs as I respect them but rather my view that the UFC is the elite show. My vote, McKee needs to come to UFC and see how he does against a rank 10-15 to see his skill level. Agree? Disagree? Top 10? Top 5? Should he join UFC and who should he fight?

    Why would he want to come to the UFC? He'll have Scrooge McDuck as a boss and Holloway popping him in the face for five rounds.

    Not only is your thread dogshit, but AJ Mckee has beaten three guys who have competed in the UFC. And in the case of Belluardo, the UFC signed Belluardo after Mckee beat him.

    He just beat Pitbull who is an absolute beast and KO'd Michael Chandler who just fought for the UFC belt, he's not too far removed.

    He surprises me every fight, that submission against Caldwell was amazing, after watching mma for so many years its refreshing to still be able to see things you've never seen before

    He’s obviously a great talent and someone who has now proven himself against another great fighter. Obviously it leads to the question of who is the best and the only way to solve that is for them to fight but that’s not how this sport works across orgs….so we debate……

    That said, it’s not like Spence has fought Crawford……

    Why would he want to do that? He's making more money in Bellator than he would be in the UFC right now. He's arguably the face of Bellator at the moment. His dad didn't have a good relationship with the UFC. So he's in as good a position as you can be outside of the UFC. Everyone doesn't have to fight there. It's better for the sport if other promotions are strong. This is prize fighting. The whole point is to make as much money as you can.

    Right

    I'd be surprised if McKee ever fought in the UFC with the relationship they had with his dad.

    Well he is a far more exciting fighter than 80% of UFC's current roster that always goes to decisions on the reg.

    Ufc more exciting fighters that do get a lot of finishes rarely ever fight because ufc is a poorly run buisness that does a lot of corruption.. wouldnt be surprised if Dana is still paying the mafia to this day.
