The Ultimate FighterEdit

In his quarter-final matchup on the Ultimate Fighter 4 against Edwin Dewees, Ray was dominated throughout the first round, with Dewees getting a takedown and staying at guard for much of the round. However, in the second round, Ray, who was mounted by Dewees, hit Dewees from the bottom with an elbow and opened a large cut in Dewees' forehead. This forced referee Herb Dean to call a timeout for the doctor to assess the cut. After assessing the situation, the doctor allowed the fight to continue. At the end of the first two rounds, UFC President Dana White announced that the fight had been fought to a draw, therefore the fighters would go a third round.

In the third round, Dewees continued to bleed profusely. The two fighters continued to grapple, with Ray clearly distressed by the amount of blood. Dewees won the final round with a 10-9 decision.

Personal lifeEdit

Gideon is married to fellow fighter Amanda Figueroa-Ray. He also has a very supportive and successful family: mother Sabrina, father Leonard, and two brothers Richard and Malcolm.[1]
