Mickey Gall (born January 22, 1992) is an American professional mixed martial artist who competes in the welterweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Early life[edit]

Gall was born in Green Brook, New Jersey.[5] He began training in boxing at the age of 13, and transitioned to Brazilian jiu-jitsu at 16.[2] Gall was also a wrestler and football captain at Watchung Hills Regional High School.[6] In order to pay for his jiu-jitsu training as a full-time Rutgers student, Gall worked as a bread truck driver for Walmart.[6]

Gall is an accomplished grappler, having won multiple NAGA and Grapplers Quest titles.[2]

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

After going 3–0 as an amateur,[1] Gall made his professional debut for the Dead Serious MMA promotion in November 2015. He faced fellow debutant Ron Templeton and won via submission in the first round. Gall's bout was featured on Dana White's Lookin' for a Fight reality show, which earned him a UFC contract.[7]

Gall made his promotional debut on February 6, 2016, at UFC Fight Night 82, where he faced fellow newcomer Mike Jackson. Gall won the fight by submission just 45 seconds into the first round.[8]
