UFC 203 Gains CM Punk-Mickey Gall

ufc 203

The long-rumored MMA debut of CM Punk is now set, as the former WWE wrestler will meet Mickey Gall at UFC 203.

Set for September 10 from the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, the card will feature Alistair Overeem challenging Stipe Miocic – in his hometown – for the UFC heavyweight title.

Punk, real name Phil Brooks, signed with the UFC in 2014 and has been training at Roufusport. However, a series of neck injuries, including a recent neck problem, have delayed his debut.

Gall (2-0) earned his spot in the UFC by appearing on “Lookin’ for a Fight.” Afterwards, he earned a win in his Octagon debut to claim the spot opposite Punk.

Below is the current lineup:

UFC Heavyweight Championship
Stipe Miocic (c) vs. Alistair Overeem

Heavyweight: Fabricio Werdum vs. Ben Rothwell

Female Bantamweight: Bethe Correia vs. Jessica Eye

Lightweight: Nik Lentz vs. Mairbek Taisumov

Welterweight: CM Punk vs. Mickey Gall
