Phil Brooks, better known by his WWE name, CM Punk is set to make his professional mixed martial arts debut at UFC 203 this Saturday in Cleveland, Ohio. Brooks will take on 2-0 Mickey Gall on the main pay-per-view card.
There has been a lot of promotion for the former WWE star who doesn’t have any professional mixed martial arts fighting experience and the UFC is obviously looking to capitalize on his popularity from his time with the WWE.
While fellow UFC fighters have had mixed thoughts on CM Punk making his professional MMA debut in the biggest MMA promotion in the world, there is no doubt that a lot of people will be tuning in to see how he fares in his first fight. There will be both fans and haters hoping to see a certain outcome for Brooks at UFC 203.
During a fan question and answer piece that took place ahead of UFC Fight Night Chicago, a self-proclaimed Mexican fighter was able to get the mic and call out Brooks for a fight, saying the Brooks has been ducking from fighting him.
“You might remember me from twitter, blowing you up all the time asking you for a fight,” the member from the crowd said to Brooks over the mic.
“No,” replied Brooks.
The member from the crowd went on to mention that he had some sort of relationship with Brooks’ sister, who warned Brooks to “stay away from the Mexican kid.”
At that point, the rest of the crowd starting booing the heckling fan/fighter looking to make a name for himself.
To close, Brooks asked the fan, “Are you a UFC fighter?”
The fan replied with the same question to Brooks who then ripped into him one last time.
“I’m on stage b-tch, get the f–k out,” Brooks said as the crowd of fans erupted into cheers and applause.
