With just over 24 hours to go until former WWE champion CM Punk makes his highly anticipated UFC debut Saturday night in Cleveland, Ohio, he and Mickey Gall hit the scales for early weigh-ins.
Punk, who joked earlier in the week that his weight cut was going terribly, and that he weighed over 200 pounds, weighed in at 170 even for his welterweight debut, while the undefeated Mickey Gall weighed-in at 170.5.
Punk was signed by the UFC nearly 2 years ago, however injuries continually postponed his UFC debut. In the meantime, Mickey Gall went on to defeat Mike Jackson via 1st round submission to secure the fight with Punk.
The fight has members of the MMA community divided as half of the community believes that Punk has no business being in the Octagon with a 2-0 professional when he doesn’t have any MMA experience. On the other hand, Punk has been training under Duke Roufus at Roufusport alongside the likes of former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis and Sergio Pettis.
Now, with both men officially on weight, and just one day away from their long-awaited scrap, how do you see this welterweight matchup going?
