Antonio Mckee announces that he's been offered four-fight deal with UFC

It's never too late to start.

Antonio Mckee -- a 40-year-old mixed martial arts veteran -- today told The Savage Dog Show that he has finally been offered a contract from the world's number one mixed martial arts promotion.

The 25-3 lightweight, who has not dropped a bout in more than seven years (2003), indicated that he has a four-fight deal on the table. He has apparently not signed it (yet) and there is no official word from the promotion.

That shouldn't stop us from at least considering the possibility, which is made even more interesting by the fact that dominant wrestlers have been making recent headlines for their so-called "boring" execution inside the cage.

"Mandingo" is perhaps that most unapologetic wrestler in the sport. If he's winning, he doesn't care.

McKee recently finished Luciano Azevedo in the first round at MFC 26, which he billed as a "win or retire" match. It was his fifteenth straight win.

Never one to mince his words, much in the same vein as Chael Sonnen, McKee would certainly be an interesting addition to the UFC 155-pound fold to say the least.

Thoughts on the possible signing? Or is this all just a ploy by McKee to get the attention of Joe Silva and Dana White? And does anyone think McKee can make a run at lightweight gold?
