Micky Gall has been very transparent in his career in the UFC so far, in both calling out CM Punk and Sage Northcutt, and then defeating both.

Yet the 25-year-old New Jersey native isn’t always so forthcoming. In fact, on Wednesday Gall posted a secret on his Instagram account, which took place just three weeks ahead of his fight with CM Punk at UFC 203.

Namely, a nasty cut he received in his training camp, which doctors told him was bad enough to put him on the shelf for a few months.

#SecretTime ! I got this cut 3 WEEKS BEFORE fighting CM Punk… Accidental head butt in practice, 21 STITCHES… Doc said I can’t fight for 6 MONTHS (yeah right). He said if eye gets TOUCHED within 6 months it’ll reopen. So I keep it a SECRET. I end up fighting TWICE in 4 MONTHS. Get GRAZED in second fight. 8 MORE stitches. 2 superstars whooped, 1 born… Worth it

“#SecretTime!

Gall last fought in December, when he scored a submission victory over Northcutt at UFC on FOX 22 in Sacramento. All three of his UFC victories thus far — including his debut against Mike Jackson — have come via rear-naked choke.
