Adam Borics believes that the final of Bellator’s featherweight Grand Prix could be contested between two undefeated prospects.

Fresh off his knockout win over Aaron Pico, the Hungarian standout faces former champion Pat Curran in the first round of the Grand Prix this weekend at Bellator 226.

Although he is focused on the task at hand, Borics revealed that he could see a meeting between him and A.J. McKee coming to fruition for the tournament’s final.

“I don’t really think about it that much, I just want to focus on my next fight. Of course, I do think about it sometimes and I think that for this featherweight tournament the final is going to be Adam Borics versus A.J. McKee,” Borics told MMA Fighting’s Eurobash podcast. “It’s two undefeated guys and it’s two hungry guys. Maybe the fans will like it if it can happen.”

Borics highlighted how he happy he was to draw Curran in the first round, remarking that he wants to challenge the toughest fighters on the roster to stake his claim to the featherweight title.

“I was happy to get Pat Curran, it’s a good matchup for me. He is a former world champion and I want to fight against the tough guys. He is very tough, maybe the toughest in this division,” he said.

“He’s a counter fighter and I think I have to be smart and calm in this fight. I’ve got to move around, kick and punch while keeping the distance because he has a lot of experience. I have to be calm and smart and not rush. I always want to finish the fights, but I must be calm now.”
