Fighter Bio


Rory Markham (born March 25, 1982) is an American professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter. He is currently fighting for the Quad City Silverbacks of the International Fight League.

Markham began his professional MMA career in June of 2004 with a second round armbar submission over Jason Guida. Following the victory Markham won his next five fights before falling to Trevor Garrett in a first round TKO.

While many of his most admired people are boxers (Sugar Ray Robinson, Gene Tunney, Rocky Marciano), Markham is an avid reader of many different biographies, which he analyzes and applies their perspectives to his own life. In addition to his prowess in the ring, Markham will be applying some of those experiences into a new venture, as he has taken acting classes and has a role in the upcoming movie “The Death and Life of Bobby Z” with Paul Walker and Laurence Fishburne.
