More details on CM Punk’s signing with UFC

As noted earlier, UFC announced at UFC 181 that CM Punk has signed a multi-fight deal with the UFC. The deal was apparently supposed to be announced last month but the announcement was put on hold according to MMA insider Front Row Brian. Dana White promised an announcement at the big “The Time Is Now” event last month but the deal was not made in time so he could not announce anything.

Brian also noted that UFC amped up their negotiations after Brian tweeted that Bellator was interested in signing him so the deal was made, in part, because UFC feared that he’d sign with Bellator.

Dana White posted the following on Instagram and Twitter:

Welcome to the @UFC CM Punk! #UFC #WWE
