Bellator 205 results: A.J. McKee scores vicious, one-punch knockout of John Teixeira

BOISE, Idaho – Doubt A.J. McKee (12-0 MMA, 12-0 BMMA) at your own risk, as “Mercenary” stayed perfect with a brutal knockout of John Teixeira (21-4-2 MMA, 4-3 BMMA).

The featherweight contest served as the main event of Bellator 205, which aired on Paramount from CenturyLink Arena in Boise, Idaho.

McKee opened the fight quickly with a high kick, though Teixeira blocked it and fired right back with a low strike of his own. The taller McKee kept his distance early, using kicks to attack the body before an acrobatic high kick just missed and sent him tumbling to the floor.

As he scrambled back to his feet, McKee looked to attack. As Teixeira tried to close the distance, a vicious left hand landed clean to his chin, sending him crashing to the floor. Seeing his opponent’s head slam off the canvas, McKee didn’t bother with a follow-up blow, walking off with a brutal first-round knockout in just 69 seconds.

“I’m amped up,” McKee said after the win. “I’m happy to put on a show for all the fans out here in Idaho. … It’s all about doing what you do and supporting others and helping each other.

“Since day one, it’s A-1. Where is my belt? It needs to be flossy. I need a nice belt around my waist.”
