Quinn Mulhern: King of the Cage champion retires from mixed martial arts


Quinn “Campamocha” Mulhern went three rounds with Japanese superstar Katsunori Kikuno at yesterday’s UFC Fight Night 34.

After 15 minutes, Mulhern lost the judges’ decision to Kikuno. This would be Campamocha’s last fight in his mixed martial arts career. Mulhern announced his retirement on his Facebook.

Mulhern, a native of Santa Cruz, Calif., began training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu as a teenager. He would make his MMA debut in 2007 against Randy Blackwell. After three minutes an 44 seconds, Mulhern submitted his opponent with a kimura.

Mulhern went undefeated for his next seven fights and became a star at King of the Cage. He won the King of the Cage Welterweight title in 2010 and made two successful title defenses – and unify both the world and Canadian belts – before giving up the belt.

After King of the Cage, Mulhern made his Strikeforce debut against Jason High, losing by decision. This was the fight before Kikuno.

Following a 3-1 run in Strikeforce, he made his UFC debut against Rick Story at UFC 158, losing by TKO in round 1. He ended his career at 18-4.

We here at Cage Pages wish Mulhern the best in his future.
