It seems that after a long delay due to injuries, CM Punk's UFC debut will in fact happen relatively soon. Punk's scheduled opponent, Mickey Gall, posted on Instagram that he heard the fight will happen "late summer" but no date has been set yet.

This comes in light of a recent report that Punk's progression as an MMA fighter wasn't going smoothly. The UFC has yet to announce their schedule for the latter half of summer, with the only event announced in August and/or September being UFC Fight Night on September 3rd in Hamburg, Germany. It's safe to assume with all the money and energy the UFC is putting into Punk's debut that his first fight will be on pay per view.
