Sam Gowland has 1.3 million Instagram followers and 265.1k Twitter followers. Evidently, he has come a long way since he first joined Love Island. Describing himself as multiple business owner and property developer, Sam proves that he is much more than the guy on television.

Not only he has a footballer cousin who plays for Birmingham City, but Sam is also a good player and he really loves the game! 

“I was pretty good at football as a kid and I maybe could have turned pro…but then I broke my jaw in three places!”

Prior to his fight with Marty, Sam was known to be a fan of martial arts and boxing as he always keeps his fans up-to-date with photos of all the matches he attends. 

Interestingly, prior to the Sam Gowland fight against Marty McKenna, Sam had been training hard. Once again, his Instagram followers got front row seats to his training pictures. 

Apparently, Sam trains with a solid crew comprising another Geordie Shore star Aaron Chalmers, who is a professional MMA fighter. Aaron left the show to focus on his fighting career. 

The Pre-Fight Jitters Between Sam And Marty…

Reportedly, during a press conference, Sam and Marty engaged in a foul-mouthed exchange, threw drinks and hurled chairs at each other. It got out of hand that security was called to diffuse the tension between them! 


Apparently, Sam slapped Marty and things escalated rather quickly and they didn’t bother to hide their contempt. 

According to Sam, 

“This is a fight we’ve both wanted and I can’t wait to knock him out in front of his friends in his home city… warm-up for a big year next year.”

On the other hand, Marty said, 

“This is a fight I’ve been wanting to have for a long time. I have so much motivation.

“December 14th it’s going down in my City Newcastle and he won’t be welcome back after. Come and see me smash this muppet.”

Bitter trash talk right before the fight might have added fuel as they were completely charged during the Saturday night fight at Utilita Arena on 14 December 2019! 

What Happened During The Sam Gowland Fight Against Marty McKenna?

Live updates went crazy as the two celebrities started off with a bang! Sam set the momentum of the fight when he started the first round with a takedown. He looked to choke Marty but Marty defended himself against the cage. Exhausted but determined, the duo charged into the second round. 

Unfortunately, Marty was too knackered to beat Sam’s takedown. Amazingly, Sam locked Marty in a choke and Marty tapped. Sam Gowland won the fight!

“I’m over the moon I called first round but in fairness to Marty fair play a lot stronger than I thought.

“I said before the fight I’m far too technical, I’m fitter and stronger and I f***ing won baby, up the Boro.

“FAME MMA, English or Polish person, I’m not bothered, I’ll fight anyone.”

“We go again early next year, keep your eyes peeled.”

Since they practically had a fight before stepping into the ring, it looks like they were frustrated with each other about something and chances are high for it to be their ex-girlfriend Chloe Ferry! 

However, Marty said the contrary. 

“I just want to get it across that it’s not about Chloe. It couldn’t be further from Chloe.

“The opportunity arose to me. I was getting 20 grand for this straightener. Why wouldn’t I take it?”

The Turbulent Relationship Between Sam Gowland And Chloe Ferry

The couple got together in 2017 after meeting in Geordie Shore. They even set off to Thailand to welcome 2018 together. The love birds started talking about marriage and what’s more, they even got matching tattoos of each other’s names!

However, the couple broke up as Chloe Ferry accused Sam of cheating with Love Island star Amber Davies

Apart from that, Sam had also started following other girls on social media very soon after their break-up. Naturally, Chloe was heartbroken. 

“I cannot get over that I have nearly been with Sam for two years and we haven’t even been broken up for 24 hours and he’s already done that. I can’t think of doing anything worse than that to him.”
