Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Gormley made his professional mixed martial arts debut in April 2007. He defeated his first six opponents, before his stint with the UFC.

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Gormley was expected to face Ben Rothwell at Affliction: Trilogy on August 1, 2009.[1] However, the bout was moved to UFC 104, on October 24, after Affliction Entertainment ceased operations.[2] As a result of a number of bouts being shuffled, Gormley's opponent was changed to Stefan Struve.[3] Gormley lost the fight due to a triangle choke submission in the first round.[4]

Gormley lost to Brendan Schaub at UFC Live: Vera vs. Jones on March 21, 2010, via TKO, early in the first round. After the loss to Schaub, he was subsequently released from the UFC.[5]

Bellator MMA[edit]

In July 2015, Bellator revealed that they had signed Gormley to an exclusive, multi-fight contract.[6]

In his promotional debut, Gormley was defeated by Dan Charles at Bellator 143 on September 25, 2015, via knockout in the second round.[7]

Gormley faced Joey Beltran at Bellator 155 on May 20, 2016.[8] He won the fight via split decision.

Gormley faced Bobby Brents at Bellator 162 on October 21, 2016. He won the fight via split decision.

In the last fight of his Bellator contract,[9] Gormley faced Sergei Kharitonov at Bellator 175 on March 31, 2017. He lost the fight via knock out in the first round.[10]
