Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight Mickey Gall has two professional mixed martial arts (MMA) wins, as well as two victories in amateur competition. That might not be the kind of record that vaults most fighters to a -300 favorite, but then again, this is a unique situation.

Gall is fighting an opponent who has never stepped foot inside the Octagon.

With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that opponent CM Punk, 37, is a sizable underdog (+230) for his UFC debut, which is expected to take place later this year in a city and venue to be determined.

It will be interesting to see how much this line fluctuates as we get closer to fight night.

Punk signed with UFC in late 2014 after calling it quits with WWE. Since then, UFC President Dana White has been on the prowl for a prospective opponent, finally settling on Gall after the New Jersey grappler submitted Mike Jackson earlier this month in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This opening line sound about right to you?
