MMA Junkie verified with a person close to the situation that Gall (6-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC) and Perry (13-6 MMA, 6-6 UFC) agreed to the matchup following an initial report from ESPN. The person requested anonymity because the UFC has yet to make an official announcement.
The event, which does not have an official location, is expected to take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. Broadcast plans have not been finalized.
Gall will attempt to win consecutive fights for the first time since 2016 following a decision win over Salim Touahri at UFC on ESPN 5 in August. He’s alternated wins and losses over his past four fights.
Perry, meanwhile, enters the contest on a two-fight skid and with just two wins in his past seven bouts overall. He most recently competed at UFC 245 in December, where he suffered his first knockout defeat against Geoff Neal.
With the addition, the UFC’s current June 27 lineup includes:
- Dustin Poirier vs. Dan Hooker
- Aspen Ladd vs. Sara McMann
- Viviane Araujo vs. Jennifer Maia
- Alexa Grasso vs. Ji Yeon Kim
- Maurice Greene vs. Gian Villante
- Tanner Boser vs. Philipe Lins
- Mickey Gall vs. Mike Perry
