The night Antonio McKee lost to Jacob Volkmann, I was out $160 that could have been better utilized on paying off the copious amounts of parking tickets I have in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, parking tickets don’t have the ability to tie into a lucrative parlay, so the state of California will have to wait to obtain money from me, again. In retrospect, if Antonio McKee didn’t lose in his UFC debut, we would have never been able to witness Ariel Helwani on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno or on the front page of Fox News. Jacob Volkmann launched a virtual political career on defeating McKee and it’s safe to say that all of it was unintentional. It’s also important to note that Volkman has enabled McKee to return to the Maximum Fighting Championship to take on Drew Fickett for a chance to reclaim his MFC lightweight belt.
The title bout goes down February 25th in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and we’re sure that Mark Pavelich will be there, schooling all of you ‘slack jawed yokels’, or whatever personal insult Pavelich may have in-store for you at the River Cree Resort and Casino. [Source]
