CM Punk’s UFC Debut Confirmed With Date & Opponent

WWE Champion
After several obstacles, which caused a delay, CM Punk (real name Phil Brooks) will debut inside the Octagon at UFC 203. He takes on Mickey Gall, who earned the fight months ago.

“I’ve been laying low media-wise, because I have nothing to say,” Punk on UFC Unfiltered. “You can’t talk a bunch of s— until you’ve been in there, and I haven’t been. The instant I got cleared, I got on the horn and nailed everything down.

Punk signed with the UFC about two years ago; leaving behind a promising wrestling career, which included several runs as WWE Champion before walking out of the company.

UFC 203 is September 10 from Cleveland. No word if Punk vs. Gall will be on prelims or main card.

    I’ve seen Gall once. Don’t recall the name, but definitely seen him fight. Could have sworn he was Bellator, but I don’t watch MME all that much in general so I might be mistaken. Anyways, the kid’s pretty good from what I remember. He won by submission I believe. And according to his UFC stats he’s 2-0, so he’s undefeated, but not dominating just yet. So this seems like a good first fight for Punk. The kid’s on a small undefeated streak, which means he’ll be fighting hard to keep it going, so he can be a real threat to anyone he steps in the ring with. On the same token, he’s new and not a dominating force like someone’s who’s 20-0. So they’re not giving him a weak opponent and they’re not giving him someone who will destroy him, which is good.

    This will be a good test for Punk. If he wins, it will be credible(unlike Batista’s 1st fight which was horrible), and if he loses but puts on a good match, he’ll still come out of it looking good.
