CM Punk Finally Gets a Date For UFC Debut

CM Punk Finally Gets a Date For UFC Debut

CM Punk is booked to face Mickey Gall in a welterweight contest at UFC 203 on September 10th 2016.

During the UFC 181 broadcast back in 2014, UFC officially unveiled the signing of Phil Brooks aka CM Punk signing a multi-fight deal.

After training in Milwaukee, WI, alongside former UFC champion Anthony Pettis and wrestling standout Ben Askren, his debut was set until a shoulder injury prevented him from competing. UFC 200 was targeted for his anticipated debut before a longstanding back problem flared up subsequently derailing those plans.

Third time lucky, I guess. The promotion have now officially confirmed his maiden pro-bout.

Gall is coming off a drubbing over Mike Jackson which earned his shot at the former WWE star, improving his record to 2-0.

Interesting tidbit for you WWE fanatics.
