Ahead of the hugely anticipated bout, even Hollywood artist Snoop Dog, who has made a name for himself in the world of mixed martial arts also showed his support, however, not for the defending champion Patricio Pitbull, but for the undefeated challenger McKee. Needless to say, it did not go well with the current Bellator featherweight champion.
“I want to give a shout out to my nephew AJ McKee, fighting in Bellator 263. He’s fighting Pitbull, yeah, he is fighting Pitbull, for a world championship and a million dollars.”
“Do your thing, represent your city, and represent everything you have been talking.”
Snoop Dog’s concluded by advising McKee to “knock his (Pitbull) a** out.” Freire was prompt with his reply which got the attention of fight fans around the world.
“Hey, Snoop Dogg, I hope you know I’m not Pitbull the rapper. I’m Pitbull the GOAT. Maybe you should fight someone in the cage. If you land a strike, it’ll be your first hit in 50 years, motherf*cker.”
How is Snopp Dogg related to Bellator fighter AJ McKee?
Snoop Dogg says he is the uncle of Bellator featherweight AJ McKee and called the Bellator featherweight his nephew. While there is no prior information of the same. Both Snoop Dogg and AJ McKee were born in Long Beach, California. Needless to say, Snoop Dogg, calling McKee his nephew could also have a lot to do with being from the same city, and representing the same place.
It won’t be wrong to say that, Snoop Dogg is just trying to support the fellow California native, and is not related by blood to the featherweight contender AJ McKee. Be that as it may, until we have don’t have definite proof of the same from both the parties, it will be wrong to draw any conclusions.
