Video: UFC posts first episode of new documentary series following CM Punk before his MMA debut

UFC has posted the first episode of “The Evolution of Punk: The Ground Up” following former WWE star Phil “CM Punk” Brooks in his preparation for his mixed martial arts debut.

Cameras began following Punk immediately after he announced in December of 2014 that he had signed a deal with UFC to make his official transition to the sport.

The first episode follows Punk in early 2015 as he began training with the Roufusport camp in Milwaukee including his first sparring session with the team.

Punk will make his UFC debut on September at UFC 203 in Cleveland against newcomer Mickey Gall. The fight will now take place before the co-main event.
