CM Punk has been tied with landing a potential role on WWE Backstage as of late but it turns out that he still has ties with the UFC.
TSN’s Aaron Bronsteter looked into USADA’s database and noticed that Punk is still being tested by the agency, which works with the UFC for their drug testing policy.
This is interesting that he’s still being tested by USADA considering his future with the promotion doesn’t appear that he’ll be fighting again.
Perhaps this is Punk still holding out hope for another fight as if a fighter removes themselves from the testing pool then they must re-enter and wait for six-months in order to fight again.
UFC President Dana White has gone on record by stating that while Punk is still under contract, he won’t fight again in the UFC.
Punk has confirmed reports that not only did he have a tryout but also filmed test material for WWE Backstage show on FS1. There’s still no word yet on if he got the gig.
