Gunnar Nelson Retired
Gunnar Nelson recently fought in the UFC in September of this year, losing a unanimous decision against number one welterweight contender Gilbert Burns. Nelson has been out of the UFC since then, most likely owing to the COVID-19 epidemic, which has resulted in various lockdowns and travel restrictions around the world.
Nelson hasn’t fought in almost a year, but he’s still busy in the gym, coaching and training at Mjolnir MMA in Iceland, his home gym. Nelson is expected to return to the octagon soon, with 2021 looking up to be a good year for the UFC.
