CM Punk’s UFC / MMA debut has been pushed back, and his opponent Mickey Gall recently responded to the news.
Gall quickly dropped Mike Jackson at UFC Fight Night 82 on Saturday, and finished the fight with a follow up choke. In doing so, he secured a fight with Punk, which had yet to receive an official date.
Well, on Wednesday it was revealed that the former pro-wrestler has a herniated disc in his back, and is undergoing surgery to fix it. The issue is expected to sideline Punk between four to six weeks. While some people took the opportunity to trash Punk verbally, here’s what Gall had to say on Twitter:
Guys. It's all good. The fight is still on. Minor surgery. I wish @CMPunk a healthy & speedy recovery. I want you at 100%, check that, #200

There you go. A classy response no? Now it will be interesting to see when the fight will go down and if it’s possible to have it at UFC 200.
