UFC welterweight Mickey Gall earned a swift first round submission victory over the weekend. Now it would appear that the talented mixed martial artist wants to face off against UFC veteran Diego Sanchez.
Mickey Gall went toe-to-toe with George Sullivan at UFC Fight Night 135 on Saturday, Aug. 25. Gall finished the fighter quickly, leading to an interesting call out in his post-fight interview.
Later speaking to MMA Junkie, Mickey Gall revealed that a few fighters are on his mind. However, the competitor is definitely interested in facing a “legend.”
“I give some options. 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.”
