Bristol Marunde (born April 20, 1982) is an American mixed martial artist currently competing in the Welterweight division. He was a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter: Team Carwin vs. Team Nelson, and has competed for the UFC, Strikeforce, Titan FC, M-1 Global, and the Seattle Tiger Sharks of the International Fight League.
Bristol Marunde was born in Fairbanks, Alaska, and moved with his family to Sequim, Washington near Seattle at an early age. In Bellevue, Marunde established notoriety when he applied his MMA techniques to apprehend a wanted rapist lurking in his neighbor's house when she arrived home. Marunde and his father ran the criminal down and apprehended him. The criminal was wanted in 5 states for multiple rapes and burglaries. He was convicted and sent to prison. The Bellevue Chief of Police and the mayor presented Marunde with an outstanding citizen award for his actions.
Marunde was encouraged to try MMA by his older brother Jesse Marunde who placed second in the 2005 World's Strongest Man contest in China. Marunde was devastated by his brother's death in 2007 but has continued fighting.
Mixed martial arts career
Marunde faced former Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Ronaldo Souza as a late replacement for Derek Brunson at Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey. After Souza gained side control Marunde tapped out in the third round due to an arm-triangle choke.
The Ultimate Fighter
Marunde was selected as a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter: Team Carwin vs. Team Nelson. Marunde faced George Lockhart in the preliminary round. Marunde won by guillotine choke submission in the first round. Marunde was later selected by Shane Carwin as his second pick.
On Episode 4, Marunde was selected to fight veteran Julian Lane. After two close grueling rounds, Marunde won the fight via unanimous decision and moved onto the quarter-final round. Marunde eventually lost by decision to Neil Magny in the quarter-final round.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
In his second fight for the promotion, Marunde faced promotional newcomer Viscardi Andrade in a Welterweight bout on August 3, 2013 at UFC 163. He lost the fight via TKO in the first round. He was subsequently released from the promotion.
Marunde faced Ian Williams for the ROTR Welterweight Championship at Combat MMA Games: Super Brawl 1 on April 6, 2014. He won via submission (kimura) in the first round. Bristol and his wife Aubrey became the host of HGTV's Flip or Flop Vegas with the first episode airing on April 6, 2017.
