Gavin Kelly vs. Darren O'Gorman II announced for Akuma FC 8

Akuma Fighting Championships will return on July 2nd in the Templeton Hotel in Northern Ireland and the Akuma Bantamweight Title will be on the line as Gavin Kelly (8-3) faces off against Darren O'Gorman (3-1) for a second time.

They first met at BattleZone 13 in Dublin in June of last year. O'Gorman walked away with the submission win during the first round.

Kelly comes into this fight fresh off a victory over Irish MMA veteran Steven McCombe at Clan Wars 24 last month to claim their bantamweight title. Before that he won the Chaos FC title by beating Neil Ward and now the grappler will look to make it three Irish pro titles in as many fights.

The last time we saw O'Gorman in action was at BAMMA 22 in Dublin in September of last year. It wasn't the best night for the Corkman as he was TKO'd halfway through the first round of his fight with Frans Mlambo. Before that thought he claimed three straight submission wins, which includes one over Kelly.

This promises to be an interesting affair with O'Gorman looking to get back on track and Kelly looking to both avenge a loss win another pro title.
