The welterweight wants to fight Mickey Gall next because he wants to defend the honor of pro wrestler turned MMA fighter CM Punk.

“I would like to beat up Mickey Gall,” Millender told MMA Junkie. “I’m a huge WWE fan, big CM Punk fan, so I’d love to beat up Mickey Gall for that.”

Gall fought and defeated Punk by first round submission at UFC 203 in 2016, it was the professional MMA debut for Punk.

If Gall isn’t available for an Octagon encounter, a confident Millender is willing to battle anybody the UFC puts in front of him.

“Easy breezy; I want to fight everybody,” Millender said. “I want to be the best in the world, and to do that, I’ve got to be up there. I’ve got my welterweight hit list. Thiago’s first; anybody can get it next.”

Millender has competed just a little over a month before his UFC debut, defeating Nick Barnes by knockout at Legacy Fighting Alliance 30.
