Tony Kelley is a professional mixed martial artist and the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighter. He was born in Seattle, Washington on March 30, 1994. Tony’s parents were both kickboxing enthusiasts while he was growing up and they encouraged him to pursue martial arts at an early age. His career as a UFC fighter began when he signed with the organization in 2017 after competing in smaller regional promotions around the US for several years before that.

By winning his first two fights since coming to UFC, Tony quickly made a name for himself as one of the most promising fighters on the roster. In 2019 he made an appearance on Dana White’s Contender Series where he won his fight against Jordon Espinosa via submission in under three minutes. This victory earned him a spot in UFC on ESPN 5 where he faced off against Jordan Griffin and emerged victorious once again by unanimous decision – further cementing his status within UFC as someone to watch out for over time.

Since then, Tony has gone 4-2 throughout his entire MMA career with two wins being via submission and two via decision; highlighting how technical this fighter can be when pitted against top opponents such as Christian Aguilera or Kevin Lee whom are also veterans of MMA cage wars around the globe too! As far as style goes – Tony’s approach revolves around using striking combinations followed up by powerful takedowns from which he looks to secure submissions or grind out decisions through control positions like side mount etcetera thus showing just how well rounded this athlete truly is inside of octagon combat settings alike!

Outside of fighting however – there isn’t much known about private life outside training/competing due primarily because it’s still early stages into Tony’s career but that doesn’t mean we won’t be hearing more from this talented young man very soon; especially if recent performances continue being positively memorable during upcoming bouts when called upon!
