It has been a little over a year and a half since CM Punk signed with the UFC. A flurry of issues and setbacks have held Punk away from his first fight. However, it seems like CM Punk is FINALLY set to have his first UFC match.
According to Jeremy Botter of FloCombat, Punk should have his first fight at UFC 202 on August 20th in Las Vegas.
Oh. And CM Punk vs. Mickey Gall is targeted for August 20. Same night as Diaz/McGregor. Hope I didn’t ruin any announcements.— Jeremy Botter (@jeremybotter) June 6, 2016
As of right now, a documentary is currently being made to profile Mickey Gail, CM Punk's scheduled opponent. The documentary would be released around the same time as the fight.
Also scheduled for the UFC Event is Connor McGregor versus Nate Diaz.
