CM Punk Finally Healthy, Fight Against Mickey Gall Booked For UFC 203


It has been, oh, I dunno, six or seven or twelve or fifteen years since CM Punk aka Phil Brooks first signed with the UFC, and the buzz surrounding his debut has never been lower thanks to — again, I’m just spitballing here — no less than eleventeen successive injuries that have kept him on the sidelines since the first Bush was President.

So before you hardcore Punkites (is that what you’re called?) completely flip your shit and start giving GTS’s to everyone in your office, perhaps takes this news with a grain of salt. As announced on the UFC’s Twitter last night, Punk will finally make his promotional debut against Mickey Gall at UFC 203 in September.

Details after the jump. 

Gall is, of course, the 24-year-old, 2-0 prospect who was discovered on Dana White’s Internet reality series, Looking For a Fight, and earned his shot against Brooks after defeating Mike Jackson via a lightning fast rear-naked choke in his UFC debut back at Fight Night 82. Brooks, on the other hand, was a seven time WWE world champion and the sixth longest reigning champion in promotional history who not only has his own Wikipedia page, but his own website to boot. SO YOU TELL ME WHO SHOULD BE THE FAVORITE HERE.

Said Brooks of his upcoming fight:

I think there’s probably something seriously wrong with me. Everyone is trying to figure out why I would want to do this. I’m a guy who gets bored easily and I have goals and there’s things in life I enjoy. It’s not about the destination; it’s about the journey.

Inspiring stuff.

UFC 203 goes down  at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio on September 10th.
