Mickey Gall hasn’t been afraid to say some crazy things ahead of his bout with Mike Perry tonight in Las Vegas at the UFC’s Apex facility.
Perry is 13-6 overall, but has dropped is last two fights and five of his last seven in the octagon. He’s got 11 KO’s in his career, and throws 4.27 strikes per minute in the UFC, but only with 0.61 takedowns per 15 minutes. He also has increased his hold on the favorite side ahead of this fight.
Gall is 5-2 in the UFC, joining the promotion after just one fight on the indies. He’s got five submissions in his career, and should look to win on the mat against the striker across the ring. He only averages 2.22 strikes a minute, but has 1.50 takedowns per 15 minutes, and that’s plenty considering the amount of time he spends in the ring: He also says his opponent is “regressing” and thinks he’s “an insecure dude.”
