While playing for the Cuban U-23 national team in the Olympic qualifying tournament in Tampa, Florida in March 2008, Bermudez along with several other members of the team, defected to the United States under the wet foot dry foot scheme that allows Cubans who reach U.S. soil to obtain asylum.
Following an unsuccessful trial with Los Angeles Galaxy, Bermudez was signed to a professional contract by Charleston Battery after impressing coach Michael Anhaeuser during pre-season. He made his professional debut on May 8, 2009, in game against Carolina RailHawks.
Bermudez was not listed on the 2011 roster for Charleston released on April 7, 2011.
