Gary "Big Daddy" Goodridge (born January 17, 1966) is a Trinidad and Tobago born kickboxer and a mixed martial arts fighter, now residing in Canada. He has fought matches in K-1, UFC, and PRIDE. He is also a professional arm wrestler.


Goodridge made an immediate impression on MMA competition, winning his first two fights in UFC 8 to reach the final against Don Frye. His first fight, against Paul Herrera, is considered one of the most brutal knockouts in UFC history - the fight finished after Goodridge trapped both arms of Herrera and proceeded to deliver multiple knees to the head, ending in 13 seconds. Although he would lose the fight against Frye, he would return again for UFC 9 and UFC 10. After his second loss to Don Frye in 1996 he would retire from UFC competition, and fight in many of the first PRIDE competitions. He retired from PRIDE competition due to alleged personal issues, and moved to K-1 Kickboxing events, as well as participating in the HEROs MMA promotion, where he still competes today.

Goodridge is also reported to have defeated 1000 challengers in one hour in arm wrestling matches at an exhibition in Japan.

I like Gary`s way of fighting, i think that he gives the crowd what they want, 100% action from the first to the last second, not the most beautiful technics lol but entertaining and crowd pleasening.

The best K-1 community online!

The focus is on building a community that offers more to the users than any other K-1 website. The focus is also on that the community should be totally user driven, with the users as main writers of content. Who would for example write a better fight report than a fan who actually was at the fight? Or who could write a more interesting fighter profile than the fan who loves and really knows about a fighter? We believe that this approach will lead to that fansofk1.com has the most interesting K-1 information.
