“I’m happy with it,” Gall said. “That’s in my blood. That Gracie jiu-jitsu, that’s second nature. I wanted to do some more, I came in to “Hey Mickey” and then “War.”
“I wanted to go to war, I wanted to bash it, I didn’t really get to throw a punch on the feet. It just came to me. I was looking for it, but I just took what I got, and that’s what came to me.”
Some fighters known for their unique fight style, some are submission specialist, others are knockout artists, but Gall is a call-out artist. His every single call-out post fight is eyebrow-raising. After his recent win, Gall opted to call out three fighters in which Randy Brown, Sage Northcutt he already fought and defeated last year and then Diego Sanchez, who is far from his prime, currently booked to battle with Craig White.
What’s the purpose of calling Northcutt and Brown? Perhaps his goal was people talk about him, if so then mission achieved.
“I give some options,” Gall said. “I want to fight before Christmas, I said Dan Hardy one time, and Dan Hardy apparently doesn’t fight (anymore), so I’m not pinholing myself.
“I’m going to give you guys some names. I give you three options. I either want to run it back with the guy I fought in the Garden last time.
“In the honor of that I’ll offer to run it back with – this is for the Cornhusk(er) State – Sage Corncutt. Or I want a legend, I want Diego Sanchez.”
Submission specialist Gall, a native of New Jersey, made his way into the UFC roster after winning a professional debut in front of “Dana White’s Lookin’ for a Fight” series. After his win, he called for high profile signee, a WWE star CM Punk.
The jiu-jitsu specialist did get his chance against Punk and ended up defeated him via submission, after his win, he picked up the mic and called out Sage North Cutt. Gall, once again becomes successful defeated Northcutt via submission.
Following Northcutt win, Gall decided to call out UFC analyst Dan Hardy. Former UFC welterweight hasn’t competed in four years due to a heart condition and declined the offer. Then Gall went on to lock horns against fellow DWLFAF star Randy Brown next.
Against Brown, Gall ended up losing the bout via unanimous decision, well this time he didn’t got an opportunity to call anyone out.
Gall (5-1) extended his record to 4-1 in the UFC after the win.
