Born and raised in Chula Vista, Gugerty began wrestling his freshman year of high school at the age of 14. As a senior, Gugerty began training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and Sambo under the tutelage of Dean Lister.[2] Later, Gugerty began training in Muay Thai alongside fighters such as Brandon Vera.

Mixed martial arts careerEdit

Gugerty made his MMA debut in 2005, defeating Cub Swanson at Total Combat 4. He went on to appear prominently in Total Combat, then moved upwards to the UFC when he was to appear against the then-undefeated Dale Hartt at UFC Fight Night: Silva vs. Irvin. Gugerty defeated Hartt by submission in the first round.

Gugerty went on to appear against Spencer Fisher at UFC 90, as a last-minute replacement for Melvin Guillard. Fisher submitted Gugerty in the third round via triangle choke. Gugerty would later defeat wrestling specialist Matt Grice at UFC 100 with a guillotine choke in the first round.

Gugerty fought Terry Etim on November 14, 2009, at UFC 105.[3] He lost via submission (guillotine choke) in the second round. Etim had the guillotine locked in for almost 30 seconds before Gugerty tapped.

Gugerty faced Clay Guida on March 21, 2010, at UFC LIVE: Vera vs. Jones, replacing an injured Sean Sherk.[4] Gugerty lost via second round submission. Following his loss to Guida, Gugerty was released from the promotion.[5]
