Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Gunderson made his UFC debut at UFC 108 against Rafaello Oliveira on January 2, 2010. He lost via unanimous decision.

Gunderson was supposed to make his next appearance against Paul Taylor at UFC 112, but the fight was canceled last minute due to Taylor not being medically cleared.

Gunderson was scheduled to face Taylor at The Ultimate Fighter: Team Liddell vs. Team Ortiz Finale, but Taylor was forced out of the bout again. Gunderson fought and defeated UFC newcomer Mark Holst.[3]

Gunderson was expected to face Efrain Escudero on September 15, 2010 at UFC Fight Night 22,[4] however Escudero fought Matt Wiman as Mac Danzig was pulled from the card due to injury. Gunderson instead faced returning UFC veteran Yves Edwards,[5] and lost the fight via unanimous decision. He was later released from UFC.

World Series of Fighting[edit]

Gunderson made his World Series of Fighting debut on June 14, 2013, against UFC vet Dan Lauzon at WSOF 3.[6] He lost the fight via unanimous decision.[7] He then faced Chris Gruetzmacher at WSOF 9 on March 29, 2014.[8] Gunderson lost the bout via unanimous decision.
