UFC 203 is jut under 10 days away and apart from the titanic heavyweight clash between Alistair Overeem and champion Stipe Miocic, there is also a certain UFC debut that has got the world buzzing.

At least, it did have the world buzzing. It's been two years since CM Punk signed with the UFC after departing the WWE on bitter terms, to put it mildly.

He's finally set to enter the octagon against Micky Gall in a welterweight clash in Cleveland and for a 37-year-old Punk, it must be viewed as make or break.

The former WWE champion - and longest reigning champion of the modern era, for that matter - answered a few questions for TMZ Sports ahead of his big debut.

So, what would the Chicago-native have to say to his critics?

"Who f------ cares? I focus on me and I focus on the positive," Punk insisted. "Anybody being negative, I think that says more about them than it does about me."

Punk - real name Phil Brooks - also left the door open for some wrestling moves in his bout with Gall, who is 13 years his junior.

"Will I be doing any wrestling moves in the octagon? I don't know, Dan Henderson dropped a pretty mean flying elbow on [Michael] Bisping one time, but we'll see. If the opportunity presents itself, you'll never know what you'll see."

But Punk's boldest statement of them all came when he stated he will certainly win his debut.

"How will my UFC debut compare to my WWE debut? Well, I'm going to win - I did that on my WWE debut."

I suppose Punk has to say that. No man can possibly enter a fight thinking they will lose. But, Gall is an up and comer with a 2-0 record not to be scoffed at. Punk will do well to get a record like that.
