Now, he will aim to not only defeat one of the best fighters to have ever fought in Bellator MMA, but also walk home with a staggering sum of $1 million. McKee can draw confidence from the fact that he has finished four of his last five opponents. However, getting a win against a legend like Freire will be easier said than done.
