Evolution of Punk video (Ep. 4): CM Punk lands UFC 203 opponent, trains gingerly following back surgery

Episode four 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, two, or three watch the full video replays herehere, and here.

"With an opponent named and a date set for his first fight, CM Punk possesses unprecedented motivation -- but must slow his training to recover from back surgery," the official YouTube description reads. "Punk's opponent Mickey Gall comes face to face with the star at a UFC event."

This episode is titled "Cult of Personality," his walkout music from the WWE days.

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.
