A.J. McKee is a friendly looking guy in street clothes, but you wouldn’t want to get in the ring with him! As an MMA fighter with a 20-win record and only one loss through 2022, he is one tough guy. We caught up with him at the 2023 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach press day where he talks about his background, the thrill of being at the track and his fleet of cool cars. He’s no stranger to auto racing as he was born and raised in Long Beach and has been attending and watching this race for years. Enjoy!

A.J. McKee is a very humble and pleasant guy outside of the ring, but you don’t want to have to fight him inside the ring, or you’re likely to lose!

McKee feels right at home in Long Beach and enjoys the atmosphere of fast cars of all types at the Grand Prix.

McKee’s new favorite car is the Acura NSX, and you can see a few in different colors in the background.
