By the looks of it, he is eyeing a return at UFC 275 and also has an opponent in mind for that. McKinney has called out UFC legends Clay Guida who’s fought every man Jack in the octagon.

Guida who started competing professionally in 2003 has a formidable 58 fights in MMA, and 32 inside the UFC octagon, with notable wins against BJ Penn, RDA, Anthony Pettis and Nate Diaz. Guida has shown no signs of slowing down and continues to defy the ageing laws.

Terrance posted a tweet calling out Guida with all due respect, saying, ‘ Let’s scrap 🔥🔥🔥 I’d love to wrestle in the cage with a legend like yourself #UFC275’

A ‘few fixes’ and I’m back – Terrance McKinney releases statement following TKO loss to Drew Dober

UFC’s fresh young lightweight prospect Terrance McKinney isn’t weighing too heavily on his TKO loss to Drew Dober at UFC Vegas 50. McKinney stepped in as a last-minute replacement, after picking up a submission win over Fares Ziam at UFC Fight Night 202 in February.

Although the young fighter had tremendous initial success, he crumbled to the experience and durability of Dober. McKinney landed some powerful punches, knees and elbows almost on his verge to a victory. But Dober maintained his composure to survive the initial onrush, and utilized his strength and conditioning to change the course of the fight.

Some fans were quick to criticize McKinney for his inefficiency in managing his energy, and poor shot selection whenever he could smell victory. But he did not let those comments demoralize him, and acknowledged that a ‘few changes’ will put him back on track.

He expressed his thoughts on a tweet by saying,

‘Respect to Dober, he’s tough. I appreciate everyone who supported me, a few fixes and I’ll be back even better’

One loss will not derail McKinney, who is hell-bent on being a champion one day.
