MVP comments on CM Punk thinking he can fight in the UFC and how he’ll do in MMA

MVP recently appeared on the Kevin Gill Show, where he discussed several subjects, including former WWE star CM Punk moving over to the UFC as well as the late Dusty Rhodes. You can see the highlights below:

On CM Punk in the UFC:

“I think it’s awesome. I respect the fact that it’s something he want’s to do and something that he pursues and is pursuing. That’s not a joke. You don’t step in that cage half assed. I compete in Jiu Jitsu, I do tournaments, I grapple. But I don’t get elbow smashed in the face. I have immense respect… Punk and I have always been cool going back to the indies and I dig the fact that he is doing something so totally out of the box… and well it’s really not that out of the box, except for the fact that he doesn’t have that life tip of grappling or standup behind him. From a business standpoint, what a great move for Dana White! Awesome. You’re gonna get brand new eyes on the product, that probably weren’t watching before, in the case of professional wrestling fans, and you create that curiosity factor. Even people who are (like)”I Just wanna see this”… and what if he wins? What if he is good? What if he does discover his second nature? I’m proud of the dude. Go for it! Live your life!”

On the late Dusty Rhodes:

“Every time he saw me he always had a hug and a kiss for me. Which is weird. Cuz I’ll give a bro hug, but I’m not into dudes kissing me. But with Dream, I didn’t flinch, I didn’t wince, it felt like a hug and a kiss from dad. He actually introduced me a few times as his darkest son. He would say ‘come over here baby, and give me some sugar. This is my darkest son right here.'”
