10 Welterweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2020


Rhys “Skeletor” McKee

24 | 6’1″ | Ballymena, Nothern Ireland | 10-2-1 | 10 Finishes | 7 KO/TKOs, 3 Submissions (RNC, Guillotine, Triangle) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 51-32 | Best Win – Jai Herbert (4-0)

Rhys McKee is a staple in the UK scene fighting for both Cage Warriors and BAMMA. “Skeletor” is a former two-time BAMMA lightweight champion. He has a key win over current Cage Warriors champion, Jai Herbert. Now McKee is on a three-fight win streak and recently moved up to welterweight. When/if McKee gets the Cage Warriors title, it’s likely that he signs with the UFC.

McKee has a lot of good fundamentals in his stand-up. He has an excellent jab and sets up overhands perfectly. Fighting at range he has solid kickboxing and overall distance control as he can knock you out at any time. When McKee gets inside he throws a lot of nasty elbows and knees proving to have some nasty Muay Thai. McKee also has some wonderful leg kicks he throws in combinations mixing it up.
