Hill told us he got into the sport because my father watched the UFC when it first started and he found it very interesting so found the closest gym and joined up.

The confident 18 year old stated : “The vision of success inspires me everyday to train harder to achieve my dreams, I am confident I am gonna come out on top in this title fight, I have nothing but respect for my opponent but trust me we are going to go to war for the fans come July 22nd”

Keith Kavanagh: “The path will show itself and the finish will come”

Cage Legacy spoke with Full Power Gym MMA fighter and 10th Planet Purple belt Keith Kavangh today ahead of his featherweight showdown with Ben Judge FMBJJ at Cage Legacy 3 July 22nd in Cork.

keith kkHow did you get into the sport?
Needed a drastic change in my life and was introduced to the sport by my sisters boyfriend who had done a bit of training with Chris Fields and then some training with Deano from C-Mac. I started off at a gym in drogheda and became obsessed from day

Who or what inspires you the most?
My obsession with becoming the best in the world at all aspects, my mission to learn all the little details that make a technique work best.

Whats next for you after this fight?
Battle of the Boyne open weight Grand Prix where I’ll take on some of the top names in Jiu Jitsu in the country.

keith kkk

“I’m positive that the training in this fight camp has helped Ben improve as a martial artist but I’m a hard person to prepare for. My game is completely different to any footage he’ll find and it’ll take a flash KO for him to get the victory”

“My obsession with detail, pushing to make my defence and offence the same thing. When you think you’re in a dominant spot, I’m capable of getting the finish. I’ve been fortunate to learn from some of the best in the world online in jiu jitsu, who have guided me and been able to answer any questions I’ve had then we also had the good fortune to learn from Decky Dalton for awhile that’s where I learned what it really means to be a fighter. Now I’m motivated every day by Declan Kenna who constantly reminds our whole team that we’ll make it where we want to get if the work is consistent. I trust my coach and I trust my team. We will all get where we need to be. I believe in my jiu jitsu and this year has been the year I started to believe in my striking also thanks to my team and Declan Kenna. I’ll show what I’m capable of on the night, July 22nd. You’d be mad to miss this show, get your tickets ASAP.

Kavanagh : “I am capable of finishing you from all angles”

We spoke to Full Power Gym and 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu wizard Keith Kavanagh ahead of his upcoming featherweight bout with Patrick Collins (RFA) on February 11th in Drogheda.
keith-paddy
The Full Power Fighter recently received his purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu from Eddie Bravo black belt  Jeremy Fields and in his last bout he picked up a fantastic second round submission finish and will be looking take that form into Cage Legacy Fight Night Drogheda.
keith-newwww
How did you get in to the sport? “My sisters boyfriend did Muay Thai with Chris Fields years ago and as he started doing a bit with C-Mac in Blanch, himself and another friend convinced me to give it a go. Looked up nearby gyms, met a student who was a 10th Planet nut and the obsession started there”
.
Who is your biggest inspiration? “My dog inspires and motivates me to become the baddest motherfucker in the whole planet with the ability to heel hook, choke or armbar anything in my way… Because he’s really difficult to armbar or heelhook, he’s too quick and agile and this bothers me”
What does it mean (for you) to be a fighter? “The behind the scenes stuff is the best part for me. Competing at these events, meeting other fighters/martial artists and sharing techniques. The troubleshooting that goes on at the gym with the people who become your family. Walking into Matthew Whyte Lightnings left hand then giving him the “Nice one” nod. I appreciate all the ups and the downs, learning from mistakes and always trying to improve to help my team improve”
keith-kav
What separates you from every other fighter in your division? “My clinch game from the bottom is a huge one, I think a lot of fighters break when they’re dragged into the aspect of MMA they spend the least amount of time at, I’m capable of finishing you from all angles, from the places you’d least expect!
If you could have one dream fight with anyone, who would it be? “Cruz, McGregor, Mayweather, anyone who could beat me up to give me a free seminar”
What do you want to be remembered for at the end of your career? “Just when you think you have him….”
