One of the most popular and accomplished pro wrestlers to ever compete in the WWE, Chicago's CM Punk looked for a new challenge in 2014 and found it in mixed martial arts. Signing with the UFC in December of that year, Punk began his MMA education with Duke Roufus and the renowned Roufusport team in Milwaukee, and this September he will put himself to the test against New Jersey's Mickey Gall, a talented 2-0 prospect who earned his shot against Punk with a 45-second submission win over Mike Jackson in February.
