About Gavin Heamy Kelly
I am a Vegan Professional Mixed Martial Artist from Moneyneany in County Derry, Northern Ireland representing Next Generation Northern Ireland.
I got my BTEC National Diploma in Sport in 2005 followed by my BTEC Higher National Diploma in Sport&Exercise Sciences in 2007 and my BSc Hons Sports Studies Degree along with my level 1 S&C certificate in 2011. After watching Fedor Emelianenko compete in Pride Fighting Championships I decided to give MMA a go and started my martial arts journey in January 2009 making my amateur debut in November 2009.
As an amateur I won the Chaos Bantamweight title and turned pro in June 2013 with an amateur record of 9 wins and 3 losses. I am the current Chaos and Clan Wars Bantamweight pro champion, have a pro record of 8 wins and 6 losses and am currently signed to Europe’s leading and longest-running mixed martial arts promotion Cage Warriors. I am also the NI freestyle wrestling champion at 66kg and the Irish ISKA kickboxing champion at 75kg.
I would like to thank my parents who have always supported me along with all my sponsors J Max Fitness Strength&Conditioning Training Facility, The Bar Health&Fitness, agathakisiel.com, inproject.co.uk, Claire’s Yoga Studio and The Market Inn Draperstown.
If you do what you love you will never work a day in your life.
