When Dawson County High School grad and current University of North Georgia student Gavin Brown was trying to fill his spare time, he logically chose mixed martial arts fighting. On Aug. 4, he had his first official amateur fight in NFC (National Fighting Championship) at Center Stage in Atlanta where he defeated Chauncey Perry by unanimous decision in three rounds. “I was just looking for something to do in my free time,” Brown said. “Since I wrestled in high school, I was kind of like this seems kind of interesting.”
