The battle remained as Gunnar’s first fight in over a year since his questionable first-round TKO defeat to Santiago Ponznibbio at UFC Glasgow.

Returning against Oliveira, he was compelled to beat some adversity in the opening round before cutting Oliveira open with a ruthless short elbow.

Mentor John Kavanagh communicated his conviction that Gunni will battle for the UFC welterweight title one year from now – refering to his ‘updated approach to training’ as a key factor in his enhancement.
