Mickey Gall ‘gonna grow from this little loss’ to Mike Perry at UFC on ESPN 12

If you were unimpressed by what Mickey Gall did (and didn’t do) against Mike Perry in the UFC on ESPN 12 co-main event last weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada, just sit tight and see what the submission specialist has in store for his return to combat sports.

He’s a grower, not a shower.

“Fun fight for me,” Gall wrote on Instagram. “Much love everybody. I appreciate you guys. No excuses. I know who I am, I’m holding my head high. I’ll be back in the Octagon soon and better than ever. Gonna grow from this little loss. No where in the world would I have rather been. Believe that. See you soon. I’m still full of love and gratitude. Thanks for the love always.”

Gall had a strong start to his three round battle against Perry — even showing improved stand up — but started to fade early in the second stanza, allowing “Platinum” to take over and secure a commanding unanimous decision victory.

With the defeat, the 28 year-old Gall drops to 5-3 inside the Octagon (6-3 overall).
