Details weight cut
WelterweightUFC
March 12, 2019
Gall told Luke Thomas of the MMA Hour that he experienced kidney failure after his loss to Diego Sanchez at UFC 235, and even passed out at one point during his weight cut.
ANALYSIS
Gall later went on to say that he didn't believe he had a bad weight cut overall, but many of the details he disclosed seemed to suggest otherwise. The welterweight fighter described "phantom" pain during his walk to the Octagon, as well as various stomach issues during the weight cut. By his account, this sapped his energy levels on fight night and may have contributed to the defeat. He was officially diagnosed with rhabdomyolysis a day later, which is a condition that can lead to other more serious complications, but should effect his immediate future after getting treated. The physical situation likely had some adverse effects on fight night, but it's also possible this was simply a case of a more aggressive veteran pushing the pace and getting the finish. If Gall's account is truthful, however, there's reason to believe a better performance is possible his next time out.
No-shows UFC 235 loss to Diego Sanchez
WelterweightUFC
March 2, 2019
Gall lost to Diego Sanchez via TKO (punches) at 4:13 of Round 2 at UFC 235 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Be careful what you wish for. Gall called Sanchez out following his victory over George Sullivan last August and he paid the price. The loss is obvious bad, but how it occurred for Gall is even worse. He allowed Sanchez to land all four of his takedown attempts and displayed shockingly little awareness of his surroundings on the mat. All this from a fighter who has won all of his career fights via submission. Gall is young enough (27) to turn things around, but this was a massive setback no matter how you slice it.

Gall will face Diego Sanchez in a welterweight bout at UFC 235 on March 2.
ANALYSIS
Gall will be looking for his second straight victory after forcing George Sullivan to submit just 1:09 into their match at UFC Fight Night 135 in August. The 26-year-old's professional record sits at 5-1, with all five victories coming in the form of a submission by rear-naked choke. Four of those wins have come in the first round, with Gall requiring an average of just 2:45 to defeat his opponent. His opponent, the 36-year-old Sanchez, has yet to be submitted in his 16-year professional career, and holds a 28-11 record as a pro.
