Fast-rising welterweight prospect Mickey Gall is slated for a return at UFC 217.
UFC 217 takes place Nov. 4 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
Gall and Brown both earned UFC contracts via the “Dana White: Lookin’ for a Fight” series.
Gall, a 25-year-old New Jersey native, is 3-0 since joining the UFC as a 1-0 pro. In his UFC debut, he submitted Mike Jackson to earn the right to fight MMA newcomer Phil “CM Punk” Brooks. Gall choked out the former WWE star in a little more than two minutes, and then in his next bout, he tapped out once-top prospect Sage Northcutt.
He now meets Brown, a New York-based 27-year-old. The former Ring of Combat champion won three of his four UFC fights. However, after back-to-back stoppage victories over Erick Montano and Brian Camozzi, he dropped a decision to Belal Muhammad in his most recent appearance. Eight of Brown’s nine career wins have come via stoppage.
