Mickey Gall Reports Bout With CM Punk Will go Down “Late Summer”
By FCF Staff
The MMA debut of CM Punk doesn’t have an official date just yet, but according to the man who will face the pro-wrestling star, it will take place late this summer.
Gall (2-0) submitted Mike Jackson at UFC Fight Night 82 in February, and in doing so, locked up a bout with Punk. The two were expected to fight in June or July, but the fight was postponed due to a herniated disc Punk had.
Recently, however, Gall tweeted out this update:
4 every1 askin I hear Punk and I r fighting late summer. I don't have an official date. If I did I would tell ya. But we r for sure fighting

Punk signed with the UFC in late 2014, but his debut has been delayed twice now due to injuries.
