Rising prospects Mickey Gall and Sage Northcutt are set to fight at UFC on FOX 22 in December.
Gall (3-0) called out Northcutt following his victory over WWE superstar CM Punk at UFC 203 in September. The 24-year old was signed by the UFC after his appearance on Lookin’ for a Fight last year. He made his debut against an 0-0 Mike Jackson at UFC Fight Night 82 and won the bout with a rear-naked choke in 45 seconds, setting himself up for the fight against Punk.
Also a Lookin’ for a Fight alum is Northcutt (8-1) who signed with the promotion as a 5-0 prospect. He won his first two UFC bouts with stoppages against Francisco Trevino and Cody Pfister before suffering his first career loss to Bryan Barberena. His last bout was a decision win over Enrique Martin at UFC 200 in July.
UFC on FOX 22 will take place at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California on December 17. So far, no other bouts have been announced on the card.
