Diego Sanchez Posted A Photo Of Bite Mark From His Fight With Mickey Gall
A former UFC title challenger Diego Sanchez squared off against Mickey Gall in a welterweight bout at last night’s (Sat., Mar. 2, 2019) UFC 235 PPV event which went down from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Early in the fight, “The Nightmare” ward off the confident Gall and eventually dragged him to the canvas and put on his grappling game. By the second frame, Gall responds with some strikes, but Diego’s knee in the clinch dropped the young welterweight to the canvas again, and from there Sanchez uncorked a series of elbows and hellacious ground and pound en route to a second-round TKO win.
Those strikes eventually led the referee to step in and waved off the fight. (watch here)
Following his fantastic victory at UFC 235, Diego Sanchez took to social media and posted a photo showing a bite mark he suffered during a fight.
@mickeygall is still a little bitch he bit me and eye gouged me! I’m from the streets of burque your lucky that ref pulled me off ! OG’s don’t tell the ref they suck it up and street fight! But I had to let ig know 🤨
Sanchez locks down the second win in a row after defeating Craig White back in September as well took home $50,000 performance bonus. He’s now 29-11 meanwhile Gall moves to 5-2.
