Bryan Goldsby (born March 24, 1982) is an American professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter who formerly fought for Bellator Fighting Championships. He currently fights in various promotions across the world and is the current NAAFS Bantamweight Champion.
Goldsby made his professional MMA debut in December 2006 and won in just 13 seconds. He holds a notable unanimous decision win over WEC Veteran, Jeff Curran. He has also fought notable fighters such as UFC and WEC veterans, Antonio Banuelos and Will Campuzano.
Bellator Fighting Championships
Goldsby upset WEC veteran Jeff Curran in his Bellator debut. That win then earned him a spot in the Bellator Fighting Championships: Season Three Bantamweight Tournament. He lost to Ed West in the Bantamweight Quarterfinals at Bellator 27 on September 2, 2010. Goldsby then replaced injured Ulysses Gomez in the semifinals where he then fought Zach Makovsky at Bellator 30. Goldsby then lost for the second time in the Bellator Bantamweight Tournament to Makovsky who would then go on to win the first ever Bellator Bantamweight Championships. At Bellator 52, Goldsby lost his third consecutive fight in the organization to Genair da Silva and was subsequently released from the promotion shortly after.
Titan Fighting Championship
Goldsby was expected to face Mark Cherico at Pittsburgh Challenge Series 8 on July 12, 2014, for the PFC Featherweight Championship. However, Goldsby was removed from the bout for unknown reasons and was replaced by Luis Guerra.
