August 25, 2016 11:24 am by Russell Ess

Former WWE superstar CM Punk is just a little over two weeks away from making not just his UFC debut, but professional mixed martial arts debut.

The 37-year-old former professional wrestler whose real name is Phil Brooks will face 2-0 Mickey Gall at UFC 203 in Cleveland, Ohio on September 10 in his first professional mixed martial arts fight.

Check out a clip of CM Punk training and getting caught in a rear-naked choke.

Interestingly, Gall has won both of his professional fights by submission. What kind of submission might you ask? Both were by rear-naked choke in the very first round.

Will CM Punk show the world that he is more than prepared for UFC competition at UFC 203? Share your thoughts with us in the comment section!
