Early life[edit]

Gall was born in Green Brook, New Jersey.[4] 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.[5] In order to pay for his jiu-jitsu training as a full-time Rutgers student, Gall worked as a bread truck driver for Walmart.[5]

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.[6]
