“To me, Mickey Gall is a means to an end,” said Punk on Fight Pass. “He’s humble, he’s respectful, and he’s smart. he called me out when he knew he had Dana (White’s) ear. He knew what he had to do, he said my name, so he did the right thing. Honestly, I’m looking forward to meeting him, he seems like a nice kid.”
Punk is yet to debut after announcing his signing with the UFC over a year ago. There’s been talk of Punk – Gall at UFC 199; if Gall can defeat Jackson.
The names who called out Punk included former title contender Michael Bisping, former MLB star Jose Canseco and many others from different weight classes.
