MMA CM Punk Signs with UFC

Discussion in 'Sports' started by Just Kevin, Dec 6, 2014.

  1. Throughout the UFC 181 preliminary card, the UFC teased a huge announcement during the pay-per-view portion of the show.
    CM Punk joined Joe Rogan during the broadcast and announced that he had signed a contract with UFC.

    "I have a limited window like all fighters do, and I'm here for a fight," Punk said. "This is my new career, 100%," Punk told Rogan in the interview. He mentioned that he'd signed a multi-fight deal.

    "I have respect for everyone who fights in the UFC, and by the time I'm done, they'll respect me," Punk said. He said that he'll likely be competing at middleweight or welterweight, but light heavyweight is completely out of the question.

    Punk recently spoke out on his exit from WWE and noted that the company wanted him to sign a no-compete clause which included the UFC.

    UFC President Dana White said this week that he hoped to talk to CM Punk. White said that if Punk were to join the UFC, he'd face someone with a record comparable to his, which is 0-0.

    Punk was also seen training today with Rener Gracie, Roy Nelson and "King" Mo Lawal.

  9. Won't he make in one fight what he would in wwe in like 5 years. Hate to say it but he's fucking smart
     
  10. It was guarenteed he'll try to do something else but I totally knew he wasnt done with actio0n yet,, personally, he should fight Jason David Frank as his first fight but we'll see how he does.
     
  11. Punk is trained in numerous different fighting techniques. He's no pussy.

    I'm glad to see he's following his dream, Hopefully he does well though.

    "And WWE can't even be considered a martial art... Awkward!" Haha

    Damn, I was just about to post this thread. Ya beat me to it, Kev!

    Anyways... I don't think there's much of a chance of him being successful in the UFC. Just because Brock made it big time doesn't mean every other pro-wrestler could. But we'll see...

    I wouldn't be surprised if he went back to the WWE after he gets an ass whooping of a lifetime.
    But oh well... If this is what he really wants, then alright, I wish him all the best in his new career.

  16. Nice publicity stunt to get more buys, Punk has no chance in hell.
     
  17. Yeah, as that song goes... 'cause you've got... No chance... No chance in hell. :heenan:
     
  18. I have to say though, MMA fans are even more annoying then wrestling fans.

  19. Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if Punk pulled out the win and then they'd be like 'It's all a work'
