Grappling Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Ryan began training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at the age of 15 under Miguel Benitez before switching to train under John Danaher, Tom DeBlass and Garry Tonon. He began competing and won the IBJJF No Gi World Championship as a brown belt.

2016[edit]

EBI Breakout[edit]

On April 24, 2016, Ryan won the Eddie Bravo Invitational Championship, defeating world champion Yuri Simoes and noted grappler Rustam Chsiev on the way.

Superfight with Keenan[edit]

He next faced top USA grappler Keenan Cornelius in a no time limit, submission only match where Ryan was able to upset Cornelius and submit him with a heel hook.

2017[edit]

ADCC World Champion[edit]

In September Ryan competed at the prestigious ADCC World Championship. He took gold in the -88kg weight category, defeating Dillon Danis, Romulo Barral, Xande Ribeiro and Keenan Cornelius. He also took 2nd place in the absolute division, submitting all his opponents on his way to losing to Felipe Pena in the final.

He would go on to win another EBI title and defeat Yuri Simões in a superfight at Kasai Pro to wrap up 2017.

2018[edit]

In September, 2018, Gordon competed at the IBJJF Pan Nogi, winning both his weight class and the absolute division all by submission. Ryan lead Team Alpha Male's victory in Quintet's 2018 Tournament. Ryan submission victories against Josh Barnett and Marcos Souza had Team Alpha Male advancing to the Finals. His submission victories against Craig Jones and Vitor Ribeiro earned his team's ultimate victory in the tournament. He also competed at the IBJJF Nogi Worlds in California, again taking gold in both his weight class and the absolute division.

2019[edit]

Gordon Ryan competed in a superfight against Joao Gabriel Rocha at Kasai Super Series 1.[4] Gordon ultimately won the match, but during an exchange there was an entanglement where Gordon was attempting an entry for a heel hook and his knee popped multiple times and tore his LCL. This injury will keep him out for an indefinite amount of time.[5]
