Following his victory over Phil “CM Punk” Brooks last month at UFC 203, Mickey Gall said he wanted to fight Sage Northcutt next and the UFC has fulfilled his request as they will meet in a welterweight bout at UFC on FOX 22 on December 17 in Sacramento.
The fight booking was announced by the UFC on Thursday.
Northcutt (9-1) has won three of his four fights in the UFC and is coming off a decision victory against Enrique Marin at UFC 200 in July. Gall (3-0) defeated Brooks by submission in the first round at UFC 203 and all of his professional victories have come by submission in the first round.
UFC on FOX 22 will come from the Golden 1 Center and ticket information is expected to be released soon by the UFC.
