Worthy made headlines in his UFC octagon debut when he scored an unbelievable knockout victory over Devonte Smith at UFC 241 in August 2019.
He then followed that win up with a third round submission over Luis Pena in June 2020. That would be the last time that Worthy would have his hand raised as he then dropped three straight bouts, all in the first round.
