A.J. McKee and Patricio Pitbull’s first meeting last summer, to cap off the Bellator featherweight grand prix, was one of the most anticipated fights in the promotion’s history. So it’s no surprise that the company is running it back at Bellator 277, in what looks to be a very stacked card this Friday.
In addition to McKee vs. Pitbull 2, the event also features the finale of the lightweight grand prix. That fight pits champ Vadim Nemkov against former UFC standout Corey Anderson. Aaron Pico gets a short-notice opponent in Adli Edwards, who is stepping in to replace Jeremy Kennedy, while heavyweights Tim Johnson and Linton Vassell round out the main card.
