CM Punk is Making UFC Debut Later This Year at UFC 203 in Cleveland


1 comment
[image-1]When UFC 203 is held right here in Cleveland later this year, former WWE superstar CM Punk will be here a contender.

CM Punk signed with UFC back in December 2014, but a shoulder injury kept him from competing. He will face Mickey Gall (2-0), a welterweight from New Jersey.

Reigning UFC heavyweight champ and northeast Ohio native Stipe Miocic will also be in the building, defending his title against Alistair Overeem, with Fabricio Werdum taking on Ben Rothwell as well.

The UFC 203 will be held September 10 at The Q.
