Welterweight prospect Mickey Gall will make his next appearance at UFC Fight Night in Lincoln, Nebraska when he faces George Sullivan on Aug. 25.
UFC officials confirmed the fight on Wednesday via the Lincoln Journal Star.
Gall, who made waves in 2016 when he debuted in the UFC with a lightning quick win over Mike Jackson before mauling former WWE superstar CM Punk, is coming back from the first loss of his professional career.
Gall fell to Randy Brown in his last fight and now the New Jersey native is looking to get back in the win column after changing his training camps ahead of his next fight. Gall has been working in Los Angeles with the MusclePharm team that includes fellow welterweight bruiser Matt Brown as well as multi-time kickboxing champion Joe Schilling.
As for Sullivan, he will be looking to get a win after suffering back-to-back losses in his two most recent fights.
Sullivan is currently 3-3 in the UFC with hopes of finding stable ground with a win over Gall in August.
Gall vs. Sullivan joins a growing lineup headed to Lincoln, Nebraska including the main event that will feature always exciting lightweight contender Justin Gaethje against James Vick in the five round headline fight.
