His professional career began in 1998 with smaller promotions and events, such as Power Ring Warriors, at which he defeated Victor Bell. He continued with a perfect score and joined World Extreme Cage-fighting, defeatingt James Gabert and Kengo Ura to compile a score of four wins, then five before he faced Chris Leben at WEC 9; the fight turned out to be Mike’s first loss.
Mike then joined the inaugural season of the reality series “The Ultimate Fighter”; he was a part of Randy Couture’s team, but was eliminated from the show in his first fight, as he lost to Stephan Bonnar. However, Mike bounced back at UFC Ultimate Fight Night, in which he faced Gideon Ray. Mike was victorious, just 22 seconds into the match, earning the nickname ‘Quick’ from UFC announcer Mike Goldberg.
