Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White stopped by the “Toucher and Rich” show to talk all things mixed martial arts and revealed that CM Punk could be gearing up for his Octagon debut this summer. “The CM Punk fight is probably going to be in June. UFC 199 is what I’m thinking,” said White.
White also revealed a few days ago that UFC newcomer Micky Gall will be Punk’s first opponent should he prove victorious in his own debut at UFC 196 on Feb. 6, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
