CM Punk’s First Fight Expected For UFC 202

Lost in the storm of news surrounding Brock Lesnar’s unexpected return to UFC, CM Punk’s first fight against Mickey Gall looks like it might finally have a real date. Nothing has been confirmed, but at least one source has reported that Punk’s UFC debut is set to go down at UFC 202 on August 20th. That card will also feature a main event of Conor McGregor facing Nate Diaz, in a rematch from UFC 196 which saw Diaz defeat McGregor to end his 15-match winning streak.

Oh, and by some strange coincidence, UFC 202 will be the night before WWE SummerSlam, and as a rumored part of the deal which saw Lesnar return to UFC, that show will likely be filled with hype for the WWE event, which is also advertising an appearance by Lesnar. We’re sure CM Punk is really thrilled that even in UFC, he just can’t get away from WWE.
