Just moments after spoiling the mixed martial arts debut of former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) champion CM Punk at UFC 203 yesterday (September 10, 2016), Mickey Gall took yet another opportunity with the mic in his hands to call out a fellow fighter to throw down with.
Gall called out fellow Looking For A Fight alumni ‘Super’ Sage Northcutt to a scrap at the UFC’s upcoming mega-show from Madison Square Garden in November for UFC 205.
That fight seemed to spark interest amongst the MMA fan-base, and apparently Sage’s team as well.
UFC President Dana White spoke to Megan Olivi shortly after the pay-per-view (PPV) event and revealed that the 20-year-old’s camp is also interested in throwing down with Gall:
“After he called him out Sage’s team hit me up, and they want the fight so we’ll make it happen. “
Northcutt (8-1) is coming off of a unanimous decision win over Enrique Marin at UFC 200 this past July, and is a young up-and-coming prospect who is competing in both the UFC’s 155 and 170-pound divisions.
The young Katy, Texas Native suffered his first professional MMA career loss under the UFC’s banner when he was submitted by Bryan Barberena in the second round of their contest back in January via arm-triangle choke.
Northcutt has since bounced back with a win over Marin, and a bout with Gall is certainly going to be a crucial test for both young men going forward in their professional combat careers.
