In an event over-shadowed by Conor McGregor, A.J. McKee scored a submission victory in the headline bout of Bellator 187 Friday.
The card took place from the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland and aired via tape-delay on Spike.
McKee locked in a rear-naked choke on Brian Moore in a featherweight contest in the third round.
However, it was McGregor’s actions earlier in the night that generated the most headlines. McGregor jumped into the cage to celebrate a victory, only to have a confrontation with referee Marc Goddard.
