Mickey Gall challenges 'super scared' Sage Northcutt to first-ever UFC 'Hair vs. Hair' match

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

After thumping former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar, C.M. Punk, earlier this month in his long-awaited professional mixed martial arts (MMA) debut, Mickey Gall has opted to embrace a professional wrestling gimmick, challenging fellow up-and-coming prospect Sage Northcutt to a Hair vs. Hair match.


Gall called out Northcutt moments after he mangled and strangled Punk at UFC 203. Company President Dana White took a "wait and see approach" before Northcutt's father shot down the possibility altogether days later, claiming his shredded and healthy-looking son was recovering from a staph infection. Earlier this week, though, Northcutt appeared on "The MMA Hour" and expressed his interest in fighting Gall in a 170-pound bout (Northcutt is a huge Lightweight) sometime in December.

Nothing is official at this time. Meantime, we get to pass along hair-related trash talk.

just got real.
