The Sacramento event will air live on FOX. Stay tuned to UFC.com for more fight card announcements.
It’s been a whirlwind year for New Jersey’s Gall. After calling out WWE superstar CM Punk for a UFC bout, he defeated Mike Jackson in his octagon debut in February before defeating Punk via submission at UFC 203 in September.
Immediately after the bout, he called out Texas phenom Northcutt, and “Super Sage,” who has gone 3-1 in the UFC with wins over Francisco Trevino, Cody Pfister and Enrique Marin, accepted, with the two meeting this December in an eagerly-anticipated showdown.
