Welterweight’s Mickey Gall and Jordan Williams are set to scrap on July 24th at UFC Fight Night 193. The bout was first reported by MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck. The event currently has six fights announced, with plenty more to come. In recent days, Raphael Assuncao and Kyler Phillips have been scheduled for the event, whilst bantamweights Randy Costa and Adrian Yanez have also been announced. At this time, we are unsure where Mickey Gall and Jordan Williams will land on the card.
Bounce Back Time for Mickey Gall and Jordan Williams
Mickey Gall (6-3, 5-3 UFC) is on the hunt to get back to winning ways after his defeat to Mike Perry at UFC Vegas 4. Perry edged the judge’s scorecards with each judge awarding the fight 29-28 to Perry.
Gall was found on Dana White’s Lookin’ for a Fight back when he competed in Dead Serious MMA. He was making his professional debut after going 3-0 as an amateur. Gall submitted Ron Templeton on his professional debut with a rear-naked choke inside the first round. UFC president Dana White had no other option than to get Gall signed up.
It was a perfect start to his career in the promotion in 2016, with Gall winning all three fights he competed in. Funnily enough, he finished all three fights the same away. Four fights and four rear-naked chokes over the likes of Mike Jackson, CM Punk and Sage Northcutt.
After this, Gall’s career has slightly gone downhill. At UFC 217, he faced a tough opponent in Randy Brown and after three rounds, the judges awarded the fight to Brown, meaning Gall was no longer undefeated. He bounced back with his fifth victory and fifth rear-naked choke over George Sullivan, but was then knocked out for the first time in his career by Diego Sanchez in his next bout.
Again, he returned with a win over Salim Touahri, his first decision win of his career. The loss to Perry back in June of 2020 was definitely a setback for Gall, but he can get his career back on track with a win over Williams!
Jordan “Bomaye” Williams (9-4, 0-1 UFC) lost his promotional debut against Nassourdine Imavov at UFC Fight Island 4. After a hard fought three rounds, Imavov was the winner on all three judge’s scorecards.
Williams has looked impressive since starting his professional career back in 2013, holding 7 TKO/KO’s to his name. Williams’ second loss of his career came against fellow UFC Fighter Dwight Grant back in the Conquer Fighting Championships in 2016. Grant knocked out Williams in the first round.
Two times Williams has competed in Bellator knocking out both Brandon Hester and Diego Herzog. He’s also appeared on Dana White’s Contender Series three times. First, he appeared in 2018, knocking out Tim Caron, but it was overturned as he tested positive for marijuana metabolites. He faced a six-month suspension.
His second appearance was in 2019 when he lost in a close bout to Ramazan Kuramagomedov via a split decision. White was not happy about the result, which would see Williams appear in the series again in 2020. He knocked out Gregory Rodrigues in the first round, which was enough for him to earn his UFC contract.
