Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

In 2007, Mulhern made his professional debut at a Gladiator Challenge event. He fought and defeated Randy Blackwell midway through the first round via submission.[2] His next two fights were both under the King of the Cage banner, both fight were wins for Mulhern, one submission and one close split decision.

After earning a record of 7-0, Mulhern took on the much more experienced, Chris Brennan. Mulhern dominated the fight and won via first round submission using the rare omoplata maneuver. The win earned him a title fight against current UFC fighter, Mike Guymon. The fight was back and forth but late in the fourth round, Guymon defeated Mulhern via TKO, retaining his title.

Mulhern bounced back from his loss to Guymon by defeating Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran Rich Clementi at King of the Cage: Vengeance on February 12, 2010.[3] This bout was a part of King of the Cage's debut on HDNet.
