Mickey Gall Talks UFC on ESPN 12 Loss To Mike Perry

Gall took to his Instagram account to release the following statement.

“Lost a decision. Fun fight for me. Much love everybody. I appreciate you guys. No excuses. I know who I am I’m holding my head high. I’ll be back in the octagon soon & better than ever. Gonna grow from this little loss. Nowhere in the world would I have rather been tonight. Believe that. See you soon. I’m still full of love and gratitude. Thanks for the love always (*when the @ufc gets back from fight island to America).”

Gall was hoping to capitalize on his victory over Salim Touahri but instead, he drops to 6-3 in his pro MMA career. Gall hasn’t been as consistent as he’d like to be. He went from being 4-0 to going 2-3 in his last five outings.

As for Perry, he has now snapped a two-fight skid. “Platinum” was coming off a first-round TKO loss to Geoff Neal. It was Perry’s first loss via TKO so he was hoping to rebound and he did so.
