Mickey Gall called his shot ... and he did not disappoint. The rising star in UFC dispensed of CM Punk earlier this year in a dominant fashion that made him look like a trained veteran taking on a rookie. On Saturday, Gall put on a textbook jiu-jitsu performance, forcing "Super" Sage Northcutt to tap out in the second round.
After a fairly even first round, Gall took control in the second, dropping Northcutt with a stiff right jab. Gall then grabbed ahold of Northcutt's back and locked in the rear-naked choke to finish off the fight.
At the end of the night, Gall suggested he may go down to 155 pounds and take on veteran Dan Hardy.
Was he old enough to watch the @UFC when I was still fighting? 😂— Dan Hardy (@danhardymma) December 18, 2016
Gall is now 4-0 with four submission victories in his brief career. While he's still young in the game, Gall may be one of the next top competitors at 155 or 170 pounds, whichever weightclass he chooses to tackle.
