Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Bermudez made his UFC debut on February 24, 2018, at UFC on Fox: Emmett vs. Stephens against Albert Morales.[5] He won the fight by a guillotine choke in round two.[6]

Bermudez was scheduled to face Davey Grant on 27 May 2018 at UFC Fight Night 130.[7] However, Grant pulled out of the fight after being diagnosed with a staph infection, and the bout was scrapped.[8] The pairing was left intact and took place on 22 July 2018 at UFC Fight Night 134.[9] He won the fight via a triangle choke.[10]

Bermudez was scheduled to face Benito Lopez on January 26, 2019 at UFC 233.[11] As a result of the cancellation of UFC 233, the pair was rescheduled to UFC on ESPN: Ngannou vs. Velasquez on February 17, 2019.[12] At the weigh-ins, Bermudez weighed in at 140 pounds, 4 pounds over the bantamweight non-title fight upper limit of 136 pounds. As a result, the bout proceeded at catchweight and Bermudez was fined 30% of his purse which went to his opponent Lopez.[13] He won the fight via a submission in round one.[14]

After the Lopez fight, Bermudez signed a new, four-fight contract with the UFC.[15]

A bantamweight bout between Bermudez and Casey Kenney was originally scheduled to on August 17, 2019 at UFC 241.[16] However, the UFC decided to move the bout to a catchweight bout of 140 lbs. due to the fighters cutting substantial weight the night before weigh-ins.[17]
