Look out, the “CM Punk” killer is back! On Thursday, it was announced Mickey Gall will get his wish and face UFC golden boy Sage Northcutt (pictured) at UFC on FOX 22.
Gall has been aggressively campaigning for a tango with Northcutt after he dominated Phil “CM Punk” Brooks last month at UFC 203. Gall was gifted the fight of a lifetime by getting Brooks in just his third professional outing, and now he gets the chance to take down a man the UFC has fully put their monster marketing machine behind in his follow-up bout.
Northcutt, meanwhile, bounced back from the only loss of his carer by posting a unanimous decision victory over Enrique Marin in July.
UFC on FOX 22 takes place December 17 at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento.
