Here is the interview we referenced earlier that aired on the UFC post-show on Fox Sports 1. CM Punk talks about how long he’s been thinking about becoming an MMA fighter. He talks about the deal taking a while because of lawyers. He talked about not reaching out to Dana White until he was clear from WWE.
The Punk signing has been picked up by several major media outlets including USA Today, ESPN, Yahoo Sports, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, and ABC News.
