Mickey Gall

USA

Has career-best performance in win
WelterweightUFC
July 24, 2021
Gall defeated Jordan Williams via submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:57 of Round 1 at UFC on ESPN 27 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Gall has had his ups-and-downs in the UFC but looked ready to fight on Saturday, as a hard elbow from the clinch sent Williams to the ground early. The BJJ brown belt hurt Williams once again moments later, prompting him to shoot a takedown that allowed Gall to wrap up the neck. If what we saw in this fight is an indication of what Gall has been learning from his new training partner and coach Matt Brown, he could be on track to revitalizing his career as a dual threat. He improves to 7-3 in professional MMA as a result of the victory.

Set for July 24 bout
WelterweightUFC
April 27, 2021
Gall (undisclosed) is set to take on Jordan Williams in a welterweight matchup at the UFC's July 24 event, Mike Heck of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Gall fell in his last bout to Mike Perry via unanimous decision in what was a fairly one-sided contest. After a 3-0 start to his UFC career, things have gotten a bit bumpy for Gall, who has now lost three of his last five fights. He has yet to lose back-to-back bouts, however, so he'll aim to avoid that fate against Williams, who was overmatched against Nassourdine Imavov last October.
Tending to injury

Routed by Mike Perry
WelterweightUFC
June 27, 2020
Gall lost to Mike Perry via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
The scorecards made it sound closer than this fight really was. The truth of the matter is that Gall was routed. He struggled massively on the feet, as expected, but the real shock was that Gall allowed Perry to control a good portion of the bout on the mat. The size and strength difference between the two was noticeable from the very start. Gall is a ground specialist by trade and looks uncomfortable on the feet when forced to stand for a long period of time. Gall gained the reputation of an elite prospect after destroying CM Punk and submitting Sage Northcutt back in 2016, but he's been below .500 (2-3) since. Gall -- who doesn't have a knockout win in his career-- turned 28 years old this past January.

ANALYSIS
