When is CM Punk fighting? 'Late summer,' according to UFC opponent Mickey Gall

Never a good sign when it takes less time to build the Sagrada Familia than it does to schedule a UFC fight.

Former WWE wrestler CM Punk, who announced his transition to mixed martial arts (MMA) in late 2014, may finally be ready to step foot inside the Octagon.

That's according to undefeated welterweight opponent Mickey Gall.

I'll believe it when I see it.

While UFC President Dana White warned fans it would take Punk a few months to get acclimated to combat sports, the Chicago native's debut has faced several delays, thanks to injury setbacks that may reflect his 37 years of age.

With that sort of timeline, I would expect the Roufusport rookie to appear at this event in the latter part of July.

Sans intrigue.
