CM Punk Dominated In UFC Debut Against Mickey Gall At UFC 203

10

Well, CM Punk claimed it was his new career, we’ll see how long that lasts.

“The Best in the World,” former WWE Superstar Phil Brooks made his MMA debut at age 37 on Saturday night, getting dominated in a one-sided affair to relative unknown, rising UFC rookie prospect Mickey Gall in one of the co-featured bouts at the UFC 203 event in Cleveland, Ohio.

Gall immediately took down Punk in the third fight from the top at the PPV at the Quicken Loans Arena this weekend, beating him down with ground and pound before securing a rear-naked choke and forcing the tap at the 2:14 mark of the very first round.

Punk and Gall were respectful in defeat, and Punk had noticeable damage to his eye and ear after the brief Octagon appearance. Punk noted that this won’t be his last fight, despite the fact that it didn’t go his way tonight. He calls tonight the second best night of his life after getting married.

For those following the theme music fun, Gall did end up coming out to the Toni Basil song, “Hey Mickey,” while Punk came out to his old WWE theme song, Living Colour’s “Cult of Personality.”
