Over the years, Ryan has put together a resume within jiu-jitsu that is rivaled by few others competing currently. He has won the ADCC World Championships, both as a -99kg division competitor and absolute, on top of winning IBJJF no-gi world and pan championships.

Not only that, but Gordon has also ventured into the world of submission grappling, scoring some big victories at the Eddie Bravo Invitational. This has led to many calling for him to move to mixed martial arts, with him hinting at this for a while.
