CM Punk will finally make his Octagon debut at tonight's UFC 203 from Cleveland. He will be fighting in the same arena that he walked out of in 2014 when he quit WWE.

Punk's jiu-jitsu coach Daniel Wanderley believes that Punk will prove people wrong. There are many questions surrounding Punk and we'll probably get many of them answered tonight but I must say that Punk did look much better in the last installment of his UFC "Evolution Of Punk" documentary on Fox Sports 1.

Wanderley did not know anything about WWE before he met Punk. He told MMAFighting.com, "I had no idea who he was. When he came to the gym, people told me his WWE credentials, but he was very humble. He introduced himself as Phillip, his real name."
