Jeremy Botter confirmed today that the targeted date for CM Punk’s UFC debut is 8/20 at UFC 202. Dave Meltzer noted on Sunday’s Wrestling Observer Radio that FS1’s documentary on Punk is scheduled to lead up to August so the 8/20 date was the likeliest date. Ironically, this is the night before WWE SummerSlam.
Also, Punk’s opponent, Mickey Gall has stated publicly that the fight is on and would happen in late Summer. UFC 202 will be headlined by Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz so it will be interesting to see what the buyrate will be compared to UFC 200 featuring Brock Lesnar’s return.
There is talk that, as part of their deal to get Brock Lesnar, UFC will be plugging SummerSlam on that show as well. SummerSlam takes place on the night after UFC 202 on 8/21.
