Mickey Gall Not Treating CM Punk Fight Like A Joke

“I’m going to prepare as if they say he’s the best in the world. I’m going to prepare like he’s the baddest dude around,” Gall said in an interview with FoxSports.com. “I don’t really think I need to see tape. I’m going to force my game. I’m taking him very seriously. A lot of people are treating him like a joke but I’m going to look like a real [expletive] if I go out there thinking he’s a joke and get myself beat. I won’t let that happen.

“I think I’ll finish him in one round, but I’ll be prepared to go three hard rounds. I think I’ll be able to get him in one. That’s what I do, I get people in one. I plan to do some violence, some terrible things in the fight. I’m going to make it real ugly for him.”

The fight happens on Sept. 10 in Cleveland, Ohio at UFC 203, which will be headlined by the UFC Heavyweight Championship bout between Stipe Miocic and Alistair Overeem.
