Phil Brooks

On UFC President Dana White’s ‘Lookin For A Fight’ series he discovered 1-0 amateur fighter Mickey Gall, who was chomping at the bit to fight CM Punk.

Dana White revealed that if Gall defeats his opponent Mike Jackson at UFC 196, he would fight CM Punk at UFC 200.

The Sun has quoted Gall in regards to a fight with Punk, and why his attention is focused on Mike Jackson.

“I think it’s a ballsy move. I respect him, he’s made himself a superstar in professional wrestling. He’s obviously a special guy. But I think he’s coming into MMA and against any MMA fighter he’s gonna be in trouble—but especially in trouble with me.”

I’m so excited man.

I know we’re talking about CM Punk because he’s the superstar. But all I’m thinking about is Mike Jackson. All I’m thinking about is this fight on the 6th.

I know if I do what I can do I’m gonna come away with the win. If I don’t do what I do, all this is gone, so I’m focusing big-time on Mike Jackson and I’m ready to put a whupping on him on the 6th.”
