Biography
An impressive wrestling career began his freshman year in 2004 at Wapato High School, where Lopez recalled friends “tricked” him into trying out for the team. While in the community college, Gustavo began training at Yakima MMA under the guidance of the late Rich Guerin, and eventually a friend asked Lopez to corner a fight. When one of the fighters dropped out on the day of the event, Lopez agreed to step in, got a mouthpiece molded on the spot in boiling water, and knocked out his opponent in seven seconds. He won eight amateur fights and then turned pro as a sophomore in 2009 when it became impossible to find challengers, but MMA wasn't yet Lopez's top priority as he became a nationally ranked NAIA wrestler at 141 pounds and earned a bachelor's degree in finance at Menlo College in 2014. Then Lopez got an offer to live with Bryan Caraway and Miesha Tate — two accomplished UFC fighters who also trained at Yakima MMA — in Las Vegas, so he bought a one-way flight and his career took off.
