Sanchez stepped in as a heavy underdog however came out looking extremely good to brutally defeat Gall via TKO in the second round, causing an upset. Gall expended a lot of energy in the first round and basically had nothing left in the tank. Gall later revealed the fact that a bad weight cut led to him being gassed.

“I gassed hard in there. Had an adrenaline dump. I passed out during the weight cut and my body shut down in the first round. I’m sorry to my friends family and fans. Send love to Diego Sanchez, he’s a true legend. This was a nightmare come true for me. I promise I’ll be back soon and better.”

The repercussions were displayed when UFC 235 medical suspensions were announced. Gall is now not allowed to even train until medically cleared by the doctor, including renal (kidney) clearance. Additionally Gall has been suspended for 45 days more and no contact for 30 days.

The weight cutting issues for Gall are a surprise as he has expressed his wish to make the lightweight limit of 155 pounds in the past.
