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.
