In a recent interview on Fox Sports, UFC president Dana White was asked about CM Punk’s future in the Octagon.
“Is CM Punk going to be a guy who is going to stay in the UFC and continue to fight? Probably not,” White said. “But he wanted to try it. I like the guy. I respect the guy. He wanted to fight in the UFC. He wanted to do it. He trained for two years, and he did it.”
Punk made his much anticipated debut in MMA at UFC 203 on September 10 of this year. He was quickly defeated by Mickey Gall at the 2:14 mark of the first round.
White also discussed Ronda Rousey, who will make her return at UFC 207, when she challenges Women’s Bantamweight Champion Amanda Nunes on December 30.
As I’ve said many times before, I was glad to see Punk defeated so quickly, and I hope that this is the last time that we see him in UFC. I applaud him for going after his dreams and trying something that he always wanted to do, but at the same time, I’ll never agree with how he left WWE, and the comments that he made about the company.
