Mixed martial arts careerEdit
Larsen started his professional career in 2006. He fought mainly for Arizona-based promotion Rage in the Cage.
The Ultimate FighterEdit
Larsen defeated Jeff Smith during the entry round via unanimous decision. Following his win in the elimination round, Larsen was medically suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) due to a cut on his head. Despite the suspension, Larsen was able to enter the house, being the last pick of Team Cruz.
Ultimate Fighting ChampionshipEdit
Larsen next faced Lucas Martins on May 18, 2013 at UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Rockhold. Despite being able to damage Martins significantly in the first two rounds, Martins knocked Larsen early in the third round. The performance earned both participants Fight of the Night honors.
Larsen was expected to face Matt Grice on October 19, 2013 at UFC 166. However, Grice was forced out of the bout after sustaining serious injuries in a car accident in his home state of Oklahoma. He was rescheduled to face Charles Oliveira at the same event, but Oliveira was also removed from the card due to injury. Larsen then faced short-notice replacement and promotional newcomer Andre Fili. He was defeated via TKO in the second round, and was subsequently released from the promotion shortly after.
