OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS: MICKEY GALL DETERMINED NOT TO WASTE HIS 'GOLDEN TICKET' AT UFC 196

WE’VE seen and heard these stories before.

Charlie Bucket found the 'Golden Ticket' to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, and Rocky Balboa was plucked from obscurity to challenge Apollo Creed.

But those stories came from the realm of fantasy. In the case of New Jersey native Mickey Gall, it’s all very real.

Gall made his professional MMA debut last November at a regional event called Dead Serious 17 in Philadelphia, registering his first win with an impressive rear-naked choke finish of Ron Templeton.
