Mickey Gall made his second appearance under the UFC banner at UFC 203, where he promptly eviscerated former professional wrestler CM Punk.
The fight made Gall a star in the UFC, but the fight almost didn’t happen due to a nasty gash Gall got from an accidental headbutt just a few weeks before the fight.
Gall took to Instagram to show everybody just how bad it was:
#SecretTime ! I got this cut 3 WEEKS BEFORE fighting CM Punk... Accidental head butt in practice, 21 STITCHES... Doc said I can't fight for 6 MONTHS (yeah right). He said if eye gets TOUCHED within 6 months it'll reopen. So I keep it a SECRET. I end up fighting TWICE in 4 MONTHS. Get GRAZED in second fight. 8 MORE stitches. 2 superstars whooped, 1 born... Worth it
Following the fight with Punk, the welterweight prospect went onto submit another prospect in Sage Northcutt at UFC On Fox 22.
Although his next fight in the UFC has yet to be revealed, but the fighter has made waves about fighting Dan Hardy when he returns to the Octagon.
