Look, we get it. You're fed up of hearing about CM Punk, whether we're talking about his future in UFC or how he left the WWE. But, admit it, you're still curious about who he's going to face when he makes his UFC debut and it appears we finally have our answer. While appearing on Michael Landsberg's Off The Record on TSN, which seems like a weird place to give this information, this is what White had to say:
“I’m bringing Mickey Gall in and he’s going to fight a kid named Michael Jackson. They’re going to fight on the prelims on February 6th on Fight Pass and if he wins that fight, Mickey Gall will fight CM Punk and CM Punk will be there at the fight to watch."
Here's what we know about Mickey Gall:
- He's yet to fight in the UFC- He's 1-0 in professional MMA fights and beat Ron Templeton in Dead Serious MMA.- He's 2-0 in amateur fights
And that's it. We'll likely find much more in the coming days. If you want to see White's entire appearance, watch the video below:
