Featherweight Prospect A.J. McKee to Face Jeremy Petley at Bellator 187 in Dublin

By Tristen Critchfield Sep 27, 2017


Unbeaten featherweight prospect A.J. McKee will lock horns with Jeremy Petley at Bellator 187 on Nov. 10.

A promotion official confirmed the pairing to Sherdog.com on Wednesday following an initial report from MMAjunkie.com. Bellator 187 takes place at the 3Arena in Dublin and is headlined by a 145-pound clash pitting James Gallagher against Jeremiah Labiano.

McKee and Gallagher have made a habit of calling each other out in recent months, and now the two featherweights will share the same venue in Gallagher’s home country.

McKee has compiled a 9-0 mark in the Bellator cage, finishing four of his wins by KO/TKO and two via submission. Most recently, “Mercenary” outpointed Blair Tugman at Bellator 182 on Aug. 25.

The 32-year-old Petley halted a four-fight skid in his last outing, as he took a three-round verdict over Chase Morton at Bellator 179. The British Association of Mixed Martial Arts veteran is 11-8-1 as a professional overall.
