Mickey Gall spoke with the media prior to his fight against Sage Northcutt at UFC on FOX 22 on Saturday night. When talking about his fight against Northcutt, he was asked if he was a media creation.
Gall said his first two opponents (referring to Mike Jackson and CM Punk) in the UFC were not UFC caliber guys but he’s excited to show that he is UFC caliber and he wants to start beating these UFC caliber guys. Gall has someone in mind that he wants to call out after his fight against Northcutt, but he’s not saying anything until after the fight. Gall believes he will beat Northcutt and that he’s tougher than he is.
You can watch Gall’s comments embedded in the video above.
Gall (3-0) made his UFC debut last February when he beat Mike Jackson by submission via a rear naked choke. He demolished CM Punk is similar fashion at UFC 200 in September. He’ll hope to finish Northcutt in a similar fashion, predicting a finish in the second round.
