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.

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.

On December 4, 2010, Mulhern defeated the Canadian King of the Cage Welterweight Champion Garret Davis in a unanimous decision at King of the Cage: Black Ops. This event unified the Canadian King of the Cage and World King of the Cage Welterweight Championships.
On May 6, 2011, it was announced that Mulhern had signed a multi-fight deal with Strikeforce. He made his debut at Strikeforce Challengers: Fodor vs. Terry and lost to Jason High via unanimous decision.
