Mickey Gall Reflects On Randy Brown Loss In Way Too Much Detail … ‘I Just Needed To Take A S***’
It’s been nine months since Mickey Gall lost his unbeaten record to Randy Brown at UFC 217 and the New Jersey native has had plenty of time to reflect on the loss.
Gall is currently scheduled to return to the Octagon on Aug. 25 when he faces George Sullivan at UFC Fight Night 135. Having spent a long period of time away from active competition, the 26-year-old says he’s been working on his striking and will be looking to show off his improvements in his next fight. One thing he will be looking to avoid next time he makes the walk to the Octagon though is the feeling he had in his stomach ahead of his fight with Brown last November.
Speaking on the UFC Unfiltered podcast this week, Gall went into way too much detail in regards to what he was dealing with.
“If you have a 15-minute block, there’s 15-minute time when you want to be your absolute best,” Gall said. “Trying to figure out how to be that and know that, I feel like I was able to be that in all my other fights. This was the first time I’ve been like, I’m not me right now. I don’t feel great. When they called me to walk out I was kinda like ‘Can you guys give me like an hour?’ But it’s like no, you got to go.”
“I was like, err, it was physically, my stomach was upset and I was trying to take a s*** and I couldn’t, but I had to, it was just, you know, that kinda screwed me a little bit,” Gall continued. “I don’t know if you guys know, but if you workout hard when you got to take a s***, you get tired right away. I was like kinda nervous of that. I just needed to take a s***.”
Gall lost the fight via unanimous decision and will now be looking to get back to winning ways later this month. Suffice to say, next time he gets his 15-minute warning, he will be hoping that he doesn’t have to face the same predicament.
“That’s why I wanted an hour,” Gall said laughing. “But you know, I didn’t ask for it.”
