Gall Didn’t Find Out About “Mickey” Entrance Music Until It Began Playing At UFC 203

1

Apparently Mickey Gall found out about Dana White’s decision to green light the use Toni Basil’s “Mickey” for his UFC 203 entrance music the second the first chord hit the speakers in the Quicken Loans Arena last Saturday night.

Gall, who spoiled the party of CM Punk, beating the former WWE Superstar in his first Octagon appearance at the event in Cleveland Ohio last weekend, spoke with Ariel Helwani on Monday’s edition of “The MMA Hour” at MMAFighting.com about the fun surrounding his choice of music for his walk to the cage.

“Then I started hearing the beginning of that song,” Gall said of the moment he realized they did, in fact, use his choice of music after initially telling him they wouldn’t be. “I looked at them like, ‘Did they switch it? Is this me? Am I going now?’ And then they’re like, ‘Yep, we’re rolling, let’s go.’ So I found out right there when everyone else did.”

Prior to finding out that they went with the music, Gall was under the impression, per orders of White, that he must choose something “harder” to come out to.

And then the fans got involved.

White admitted to Gall leading up to the event that the fans had been all over his case about allowing him to use the “Mickey” song after all.

“Dana told me, ‘Hey dude, I’m getting f*cking abused online for this ‘Hey Mickey’ stuff,'” Gall said “I think the people online, it shows you guys are heard. We’ve got a voice out there.”
