WHOA!! It had been speculated for the past while that CM Punk would be moving into MMA but more importantly that the UFC would be his place to learn. People rolled their eyes and said it would never happen and that it is all just talk. Well, ladies and gentlemen, the former WWE superstar is now official a member of the UFC roster.
The UFC teased a ‘big announcement’ early in the UFC 181 prelims broadcast and turned out to be the signing of CM Punk. After the first fight of the main card Joe Rogan interviewed the former WWE champ about the move. You can watch that interview below:
Alan’s Angle: Good business decision from the UFC and I believes everyone’s expectations are realistic heading into this deal. White has stated that Punk will face a guy with a similar record and they will go from there. I do not expect Punk to get to the top of whichever division he decides to pursue but I will enjoy the ride while it lasts.
