    Sage made a critical error due to lack of experience and ducked for a takedown when he should have straightened up knowing he has nothing for Gall on the ground. But before that costly mistake he clipped Gall a few times and might have got the finish later in the round. In short: Gall's striking got exposed badly.

    Other mistake by Sage, he was dancing around too much, taunting, when he was in no position to do so. Hopefully not low fight iq but just lack of experience.

    Yeah, I see that. Gall might be super one dimensional.

    Well, it's his fourth professional fight. Weaknesses are to be expected. He still dropped a striker.

    Gall hit sage right above the ear and dropped him. Sage was rocked, panicked and went for a takedown. Then Gall took the back and finished him quick, no problem.

    Gall looked great, he's got a bright future, especially if he can make 155.

    His striking was exposed? It was never supposed to be any kind of good. This fight just showed us who was worst, not who should even belong in the UFC.

    I wasn't impressed. Slow, hitable and how good is his ground game really? Difficult to tell considering I've only seen him against the two worst ground fighters not named James Toney in UFC history

    That punch was pretty lucky by Gall, he swung for the fences and wasn't even looking at Sage.

    He is pretty skinny at 170, I very much doubt he can make 155 consistently at 6'2.

    "His striking got exposed!"

    You mean the BJJ purple belt who's RNC'd every opponent, and who just recently got an actual striking coach, needs work on his striking? How shocking.

    You don't get "exposed" 4 fights into your career.

    I don't know what you mean by exposed. It's common knowledge that Gall is mostly BJJ guy. He only got 2 fights under his belt.

    It was his first time facing someone capable of fighting back. Of course he still has a lot to work on.

    He looks slightly more well-rounded than a Gracie.

    Gall did well. He fought a guy with decent standup and speed, took some expected hits, and still won the fight.

    Clearly he needs work on his feet, but he's pretty damn good on the ground and he's got decent and (most importantly) improvable standup.

    There are many fighters in the UFC who have worst standup than Mickey Gall.

    Sage should stop using his uneffective sidekicks
