CM Punk and UFC officials will begin to discuss his first opponent in about six months, according to Punk in an interview on Inside MMA on Friday night.

We’ve previously reported the timeline for Punk’s first fight was Fall 2015.

Here’s a list of UFC shows from September through December:

UFC 191 on September 5, 2015
UFC 192 on October 3, 2015
UFC 193 on November 14, 2015
UFC 194 on December 5, 2015

Punk’s debut will take place on pay-per-view. Locations and venues for the above are still to be announced.

It looks like Punk will fight either as a Middleweight or Light Heavyweight. He was at 220 lbs. when UFC first approached him about fighting but has lost a considerable amount of weight.

    Middleweight is most probable for him. If he has lost considerable weight from 220 then virtually, he would not have to cut any weight to make LHW, making him too small for the weight class. If he only has to cut 10 or 15 pounds to make MW, then we might even see him fight at WW, if he thinks he can handle the cut. We shall see what happens when he gets into fighting shape.
