CM Punk has oficially announced that he will be fighting Mickey Gall at UFC 203 on September 10th in Cleveland. Punk made the official announcement on the UFC Unfiltered podcast.
Here is what Punk had to say regarding the fight:
"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."
Tickets for the event go on sale tomorrow and Punk is expected to be a major PPV draw for his debut.
