UFC: Curtis Millender sets his sights on Mickey Gall after stellar UFC debut victory

“Courteous” Charles Millender was anything but hospitable to his opponent on Sunday, as he sent Thiago Alves packing with a brutal knee in the second round of their Welterweight showdown.

After also picking up $50,000 as a Performance of the Night bonus, the Courteous one was understandably excited with what he thought lay ahead of him in the UFC.

He told MMA Junkie:

“I would like to beat up Mickey Gall. I’m a huge WWE fan, big CM Punk fan, so I’d love to beat up Mickey Gall for that [defeating CM Punk in his UFC debut].”

With a professional record of 15-3, Millender showcased every bit of his 18-fight experience on his UFC debut, calmly picking apart veteran Thiago Alves from the outside with precise counter shots and constant stance changes.

Eventually, upon seeing an opening, he landed a fight-ending knee strike in the second round that sent the Brazilian fighter slumping to the ground. Millender, however, insists that it was always part of the plan.

I knew this was coming. I worked really hard. I have a canteen of water that I drink every day, and every fight I write my goals on it. And it says that I’m going to knock him out in the second round. I’m going to tweet it when I get home and see that the marker is fading. I work hard, and when I say I’m going to do it, I’m going to do it.

Millender also announced in his post-fight interview that every fighter on the UFC Welterweight roster was on his hitlist next.

On a 7 fight win streak now, it would be intriguing to see who he is matched up against going forward. And after such a masterful performance, it wouldn’t be surprising if the 30-year-old is thrust straight into the shark tank that is the top 15 at 170 pounds.
