Rivalries: Mickey Gall | Flayer

Mickey Gallthe mandate of
Ultimate Fighting Championship
so far can be described as consistently inconsistent.

The Miller Brothers MMA product will step into the Octagon for the 11th time when he takes on promotional newcomer Mike Mallott as part of the
UFC 273
undercard Saturday at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla. Gall, 30, has alternated wins and losses in each of his last seven appearances. He last competed at UFC on ESPN 31, where he was outclassed by Alex Morono
in three rounds on December 4.

As Gall gets ever closer to his showdown with Mallott, take a look at some of the rivalries that helped shape his career:

Gall submitted the former World Wrestling Entertainment superstar and current All Elite Wrestling with a rear-end choke during the first round of their UFC 203 welterweight showcase on September 10, 2016 at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. Brooks, who has spent the past two years training with Duke Roufus at
Milwaukee Academy hit the choke 2:14 into the first round. Gall ducked under the oncoming “CM Punk” and landed a double leg takedown in the opening 10 seconds. He lit up Brooks with the ground and the pound, switched to side control and finally advanced to the back. From there, Gall hacked with punches, slid his arms into place and secured the choke for the finish.

The rep once again fell short of expectations when he submitted to a rear-end choke from Gall in the second round of their UFC co-main event on Fox 22 on Dec. 17, 2016 at the Golden 1 Center. of Sacramento, California. Northcutt retired 1:40 into the second round. Gall neutralized the Texan with takedowns and position control for much of the opening lap, pulling off a full climb in the closing seconds. Northcutt, just 20 at the time, appeared to have the Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt reeling from the punches in the middle stanza. However, Gall broke out of a clinch and dropped it with an overhand right to the side of the head. He then sprawled out of a takedown, rolled over Northcutt’s back, laced his legs into a body triangle and tightened the choke. The win moved Gall to 4-0.
