A.J McKee took home his fifth Bellator win on Friday when he defeated Cody Walker via Guillotine Choke early in the second round, but he's got big ideas for what he wants next.

"I would love to do a father-son fight and be the first in history to do that" he said during the Bellator 160 post fight press conference. "Nobody's done that. I'll corner my dad and he'll corner me."

McKee's father is Antonio McKee, a professional MMA fighter with an impressive 29-6 professional record, who's had fights in World Series of Fighting, UFC, King of the Cage and the now defunct IFL.

McKee Sr. hasn't fought since 2014, but that was a win, so there's no reason why he couldn't return to the cage.

Perhaps the matchmakers at Bellator have something up their sleeves.

Regardless of who he fights next, McKee says he knows he will enjoy it.

"When I am in that cage, I am having fun," he said. "I enjoy coaching, I enjoy helping. This is just what I do."
