It’s finally official. On the latest UFC Unfiltered podcast, CM Punk announced that he was cleared this week for everything and it’s nice to be healthy. He also announced that he will be fighting Mickey Gall at UFC 203 on September 10th in Cleveland.
Punk said that he’s been rehabbing his back and once he got cleared, he was able to work out a date with Dana White. Punk said that his doctor told him that he had been walking around with a herniated disc for “probably years.”
Punk was asked to give his thoughts on Mickey Gall. He says that Gall is a tough kid and his fights have been short so he hasn’t been able to learn too much about his fighting style.
Punk talks about the transition from WWE to UFC, his relationship with Chael Sonnen, his mic skills, the roadblocks he’s had to go through, his approach to weight cutting and more.
