The UFC 203 open workouts went down in Cleveland earlier today.

In attendance were former champ Urijah Faber, Cleveland's own Jessica Eye, overnight sensation Mickey Gall, crossover superstar CM Punk, and of course, title challenger Alistair Overeem and heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic.

Check out some of the highlights from the event below:

All of the athletes who participated seemed to be in high spirits. Jessica Eye in particular received a huge round of applause from the hometown crowd ahead of her match-up with Bethe Correia, which will headline Saturday's prelim card on Fox Sports 1.

Mickey Gall meanwhile entertained those in attendance by taking requests for submissions he would perform during the workouts. Despite it only being his second UFC fight (and third pro fight overall at that), he's clearly not intimidated by all of the attention.

Finally, taking a page out of fellow wrestler Brock Lesnar's book, CM Punk took the stage to show off his skills ... for all of three minutes, before moving into a Q&A.

UFC 203 takes place on Saturday, September 10 on PPV.
