Now in their rematch at Bellator 277, AJ McKee started the first round pretty strong but then lost his momentum as Patricio Pitbull had an amazing game plan for him. Patricio Pitbull had amazing success with the strikes in the first two rounds as he was landing some amazing strikes on AJ who was finding it difficult to get his rhythm right.

The 3,4 and 5 rounds are where AJ started to get into the fight and started landing his combination and started to get ahead of Patrico. He also landed 4 takedowns out of the few attempts he made. Patricio Pitbull had also locked an amazing guillotine on AJ who barely got out of it and won the rest of the fight. The fight was pretty close but many thought that AJ had done enough to keep his belt to himself but the judges had some other ideas and then declared Patricio Pitbull as the winner.
