The latest episode of the UFC Unfiltered podcast featured CM Punk, and in the process of the show, Punk confirmed that his long awaited UFC debut will take place at UFC 203, on September 10, where he will face Mickey Gall.
Here are Punk’s comments:
I’ve been laying low media-wise, because I have nothing to say. You can’t talk a bunch of s–t 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, and I’ll be debuting September 10 in Cleveland. I’m happy to have a date, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. You keep training and keep training until you hit a wall, and that was the point I was at. I found out I’ve been walking around with a herniated disk for probably years.
Following Punk’s announcement the UFC took to Twitter to officially conform the fight. Here is the Tweet:
