UFC 273: Mallot face-plants Gall on debut – donates show money to cancer stricken child

UFC 273 is shaping up to become a great night.

In his UFC debut, Mike Malott faced former prospect, Mickey Gall, during the preliminary card.

As soon as the fight started it became evident that Malott was the better striker of the two. During several exchanges where the two traded blows, Gall was eating the harder punches. But Mallot didn’t come out unscathed either. His nose started bleeding early on.

Later in the round, Gall’s durability could not save him as Malott landed a crips left hand that completely floored Mickey Gall.

After the fight, Malott gave a heartwarming speech. After talking about his debut and what that meant to him, Malott mentioned that he’d be giving his show money ($10,000) to a kid that is currently battling cancer.

That kid is the daughter of one of Malott’s coaches. She is 15-years-old and suffers with Stage 3 Lymphoma.

Another UFC fighter, Josh Emmett, created a “Gofundme” page to help the family deal with the medical costs, you can visit and donate to the page here.

After his stellar UFC debut, Malott cemented himself as one of the prospects for the welterweight division.

Meanwhile, Mickey Gall appears to be in a tough spot in the UFC. The fighter is 7-5 in his career and lost 4 out of his last 6 fights for the organization.

 Malott’s charitable efforts were not in vain.
