UFC 203: CM Punk media day video highlights from Milwaukee

After a series of setbacks, delays, and punchlines, former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar Phil Brooks -- aka "CM Punk" -- will make his Octagon debut at the upcoming UFC 203 pay-per-view (PPV) event inside Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, on Sept. 10, 2016.

Waiting for him will be regional import Mickey Gall.

Brooks (0-0) announced his transition to mixed martial arts (MMA) in late 2014; however, the 37-year-old welterweight was in no hurry to get his hands dirty inside the Octagon. Once he did commit to a debut date, following tutelage from Duke Roufusinjuries kept him at bay.
