After beating Mike Jackson at UFC Fight Night 82 in Las Vegas, Mikey Gall will go on to fight CM Punk. The 2-0 Gall faced MMA media member and pro boxer Mike Jackson on Saturday, in what was Jackson’s professional MMA debut. Gall submitted Jackson in 45 seconds.
Gall knocked Jackson down with a punch. Gall climbed on Jackson’s back and submitted him with a rear naked choke. This was Gall’s 2nd submission in a row.
CM Punk was in attendance for the fight and shook Gall’s hand during a face -to-face in the octagon post-fight. During the meeting, CM Punk asked Gall “are you having fun?” and Gall said he was having a blast.
Dana White said he was impressed with how quickly Gall submitted Jackson.
No date is set for the fight yet. UFC 200 is the leading speculative candidate. Punk suggested UFC 200 in an interview on UFC Fight Pass. Dana White said UFC is narrowing down a date, he mentioned UFC 199 but it is still to be decided.
