Mickey Gall is looking to get right back into the octagon following his loss to Mike Perry.

Gall (6-3 MMA, 5-3 UFC) lost a unanimous decision to Perry in the co-main event of UFC on ESPN 12 after a contest that saw him enjoy plenty of success standing early on.

Gall tagged Perry with clean shots on numerous occasions as he showed off his much-improved striking and earned 10-9 scores for Round 1 on all three of the judges’ scorecards.

However, despite Gall’s solid start, Perry eventually found his timing, and “Platinum” turned the tables on Gall midway through Round 2 and controlled the remainder of the fight.

“No excuses. Wasn’t really my night tonight,” Gall said. “I feel like I was getting the better of the standup, but not in the grappling. Go figure, right?”

The 28-year-old New Jersey native fell short on Saturday, but Gall is hoping the UFC grants his wish for a quick turnaround, with the former “Lookin’ For a Fight” prospect targeting the UFC’s August cards in the U.S.

Gall offered up no excuses after his defeat as he took to Instagram to share his thoughts on the fight. You can read his full statement below:

Lost a decision. Fun fight for me. Much love everybody. I appreciate you guys. No excuses. I know who I am I’m holding my head high. I’ll be back in the octagon soon & better than ever. Gonna grow from this little loss. No where in the world would I have rather been tonight. Believe that. See you soon. I’m still full of love and gratitude ❤️ Thanks for the love always (*when the @ufc gets back from fight island to America).
