CareerEdit

Day, a practitioner of the Eddie Bravo "Rubber Guard" grappling system, holds notable victories over UFC middleweight contender Alan Belcher and former UFC middleweight title challenger David Loiseau.

On August 4, 2011 he was involved in a traffic accident while riding on his bike. Due to sustained injuries by the accident, Day could no longer compete in MMA. In 2014 the court ruled that the car driver was 90-percent at fault. The judgment awarded Day $375,000 in damages due to any potential lost earnings and emotional suffering that came with a premature end to his athletic career, from which he was granted $340,000 as the collision was ruled 10-percent his fault.[1]
