UFC young guns Sage Northcutt and Mickey Gall will finally get to settle their bad blood inside the Octagon.

The mixed martial arts promotion announced on Thursday that the rising stars will throw down at UFC on FOX 22 in Sacramento in a welterweight affair. According to ESPN, this is the only bout confirmed thus far for the December 17 fight card.

Gall has been campaigning for a match-up against Northcutt ever since he derailed CM Punk's MMA dreams by submitting the ex-WWE star.

"I want 'Super' Sage Northcutt, I think that boy's corny" Gall told commentator Joe Rogan inside the Octagon at UFC 203. "I want to punch the spikes out of his hair."

Northcutt, who's coming off of a unanimous decision win over Enrique Marín at UFC 200, recently responded to Gall's callout in an interview with Ariel Helwani.

"You know what's funny, Mr Helwani? [Mickey Gall] said he was gonna' punch the spikes out of my hair," Northcutt said. "You know, His hair kinda' looks like mine; it just doesn't have the hair gel in it. I'm thinking he should get some hair gel and style it or something."

Suffice to say fans can expect some epic and hilarious trash-talking when these two up-and-comers finally get to punch each other in the face.
