Mickey Gall injured, out of fight with Miguel Baeza at UFC Vegas 11

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Miguel Baeza will need a new opponent for next weekend’s UFC Vegas 11 event.

Sources close to the situation confirmed to MMA Fighting that Mickey Gall was forced to withdraw from the welterweight bout due to an undisclosed injury. Currently, there’s no word on whether or not Baeza will get a replacement for the event at the UFC APEX.

Gall subsequently confirmed the scratch via his Instagram account on Friday night.

Gall has flip-flopped wins and losses over his last six fights, beginning with a second-round submission win over Sage Northcutt at UFC on FOX 22. The New Jersey native dropped his first pro fight to Randy Brown at UFC 217 before bouncing back with a first-round submission win over George Sullivan at UFC Lincoln in August 2018. Since then, the 28-year-old has suffered losses to Diego Sanchez and Mike Perry, while earning a hard fought decision win over Salim Touahri at UFC Newark in-between.

UFC Vegas 11 will be headlined by a welterweight grudge match between Colby Covington and Tyron Woodley.
