CM Punk’s MMA debut happens in less than a week, at UFC 203. The former WWE superstar is considered a heavy underdog by most pundits, but a certain MMA legend is picking him to defeat the younger and more experienced fighter in Mickey Gall.

Renzo Gracie spoke about the former pro-wrestler, and he believes he has what it takes to go home with the victory.

“I love the guy. I love CM Punk. He’s a great guy, and he’s a very tough guy,” Gracie told SiriusXM Rush. “He trained for a long time with my cousins in Los Angeles, and now he’s training with Duke Roufus. For sure he will represent well this sport. I can’t wait to see his debut.”

“He’s going to be against a tough guy, but I think he has a big chance to win,” he said. “(I think he wins) with a guillotine. I believe, second round.”

Punk is currently a +275 underdog.
