UFC Lincoln: While Expecting a War, Submission Finish Was “Second Nature” for Mickey Gall


Mickey Gall did just fine on Saturday night at UFC Lincoln, and discussed his impressive win over George Sullivan, a fellow veteran of the Jersey scene, post-fight.

Lincoln, NB — Once again walking out to ‘Hey Mickey,’ Mickey Gall was ready to go to war on Saturday night at UFC Lincoln. Fighting an old star of the regional scene he was very familiar with in George Sullivan, Gall was looking to put his first career loss behind him. He did just that against Sullivan, capturing the victory in little over a minute. With that impressive win, he put himself right back on the radar as a hot prospect.

Admitting he wanted to “do some more,” Gall pointed out that the ground game is “in my blood. At Gracie Jiu-jitsu, that’s just second nature.” So while he didn’t get the war he was looking for coming in, he’s happy with the victory.

There was no surprise about how quickly and dominantly it came, either. “I know I can steamroll and dominate anyone, that’s what I do,” Gall said. “If I have my night, yeah. I can dominate and steamroll anybody.”

As for his opponent, “it’s an honor to fight George Sullivan. That’s a dude I looked up to. He’s a Jersey legend, I’m a Jersey legend.” With that win, even quicker than his finish of CM Punk, it’s a legend that will continue to grow.
