NFL careerEdit

Goodman lasted only 2 seasons in the NFL with the Green Bay Packers. He played at the running back position and handled some kick returns. In his two seasons in the NFL he ran the ball four times for -3 yards and fumbled twice.[2] Goodman was allocated to NFL Europe in 2002 where he started for the Scottish Claymores,[3] rushing for 873 yards to lead the league and also surpass Siran Stacy's single season team rushing record.[4]

MMA careerEdit

Goodman started his professional MMA career in 2007. He holds notable victories over UFC veteran Jordan Radev and The Ultimate Fighter 7 veteran Dante Rivera. He fought Hector Lombard at Bellator 24 and lost via first round KO.[5]

Combat USAEdit

Goodman fought Will Dicke in the Wisconsin State semifinals and won via unanimous decision to move on to the Wisconsin State finals. He fought Gerald Meerschaert in the Wisconsin State finals and won via submission (Rear Naked Choke) to become the Middleweight State Champion of Wisconsin.

Goodman was supposed to face Louis Taylor, the Middleweight State Champion of Illinois, on July 16, 2011 at Combat USA Wisconsin vs. Illinois but Taylor dropped out of the fight just 2 hours before the weigh ins with a bruised leg.
