UFC 273 highlights: Mike Malott brutally knocks out Mickey Gall in successful debut

Mike Malott and Mickey Gall battled earlier today (Sat., April 9, 2022) at UFC 273 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida. Malott proved himself the sharper striker early on, and that resulted in a huge knockout win in the very first round.

At distance, Malott was the more accurate man, firing straight shots down the middle and landing his right hand at a good clip. A couple times, Gall seemed a bit stunned, but he nevertheless kept pushing forward. Gall did land a takedown and a couple punches as his foe worked back up, but that proved to be his last success of the bout. As Gall moved forward, Malott sat him down hard with a left hook, and he followed up with more brutal shots.
