If you’ve been following Punk’s MMA saga, then you know that Gall is the man who will welcome the former pro-wrestler to the Octagon. Gall called out Punk during Dana White’s “Lookin’ for a Fight” show, and then tapped out Mike Jackson in February to advance to a bout with him.
Originally, the plan was to have them fight at UFC 199 or UFC 200, but Punk had to have surgery on a herniated disc, and the bout was pushed back.
Gall has apparently been fielding plenty of questions as to when and if he’s still facing Punk, as he recently tweeted this:
4 every1 askin I hear Punk and I r fighting late summer. I don't have an official date. If I did I would tell ya. But we r for sure fighting

So, there you go. It’s going to be interesting to see what goes down.
