Evolution of Punk video (Ep. 3): CM Punk trains 'hurt' leading up to UFC 203 debut

Episode three of the four-part series, "The Evolution of Punk," aired on FOX Sports 1 earlier this week, chronicling Phil Brooks' (a.k.a. CM Punk) journey from the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) ring to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Octagon.

If you missed episode one and two, watch the full video replays here and here.

After months of rehabbing a shoulder injury, CM Punk is eager to get back in the gym," the official YouTube description reads. "Once he's finally cleared to train again, Punk makes positive strides and learns the name of his first opponent in the UFC. He also takes a fan comic book shopping and celebrates Christmas with his wife."

This episode is titled "Hurt" ... a good way to describe the past two years.

Brooks (0-0), who crossed over to combat sports in late 2014, will finally 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.
