Gary Goodridge (born January 17, 1966), nicknamed "Big Daddy", is a professional Super Heavyweight Kickboxer and Mixed martial artist (MMA) born in Trinidad and Tobago but living and fighting out of Barrie, Ontario, Canada. Goodridge is known for his hard-hitting fighting style and showmanship. Prior to Kickboxing and MMA, he was also one of the top ranked contenders in the world of professional arm wrestling.[1]

CareerEdit

Before Goodridge got into MMA he was a successful world champion at arm wrestling. He was able to defeat the likes of greats Sharon Remez and legendary John Brzenk in 1991.

Mixed martial arts careerEdit

Goodridge made an immediate impression on MMA during his debut at UFC 8 against Paul Herrera, whom Goodridge outweighed by nearly 80 lbs. After Herrera attempted a fireman's carry, Goodridge trapped both of his arms in a crucifix hold and proceeded to deliver multiple elbow blows to the helpless Herrera's head, ending the bout in 13 seconds. The second elbow strike knocked Herrera unconscious, but the fight was not stopped until after Goodridge landed six more strikes. Goodridge would reach the final match of the UFC 8 tournament against Don Frye in a losing effort.

Goodridge returned to competition for the next three UFC tournaments, losing his final UFC match to Don Frye at Ultimate Ultimate 96. After the second loss to Frye, Goodridge began competing in Japan's PRIDE promotion, only to leave the promotion due to alleged personal issues. He soon signed with K-1 and their MMA affiliate HERO'S, where he still competes today.

Goodridge returned to face Gegard Mousasi at Dynamite!! 2009,[2] where he lost via first round TKO.

Kickboxing careerEdit

Goodridge made his kickboxing debut in 1999 at K-1 Revenge, against Musashi and lost the fight by disqualification. His first win in K-1 came against Mike Bernardo by TKO in K-1 World GP 2002 in Las Vegas.[3]

In 2005, Goodridge participated in two K-1 World GP tournaments held in United States. On April 30 in Las Vegas he knocked out Sean O'Haire and Scott Lighty and reached the finals, where he was stopped by Glaube Feitosa with a high kick KO. Three months later, on July 30, 2005, in Honolulu, Hawaii he scored three KO wins in three bouts to win the K-1 World Grand Prix in Hawaii Tournament.[4]
