There’s something to be said about visualizing your success too.
Before the pandemic messed up everyone’s schedule, Bellator hosted an event to announce Spring and Summer dates for the rest of 2020. That was on March 9, the pandemic was declared on March 11.
Regardless of that, at the event I got to speak to McKee again for MMANews
and before I recorded him, he was holding the belt and looking at it, seeing how it feels. He was trying it on for size like a suit he was about to get.
In the interview, he said, “It’s been written. It’s already been wrote or what’s been wrote has already been written.” He laughed about it because he had just gotten over knee surgery. The pandemic seemed to favor him getting more recovery time that only added to an already great athletic performance.
When he finally did fight again, he fought Darrion Caldwell. The fight was announced at the above-mentioned press conference. He won with a submission that had folks talking for a while. I wrote about it over at MyMMANews
