Part 1 of “The Evolution Of Punk” is up now on UFC’s official YouTube channel. The first episode starts off with Punk’s early MMA training at Roufusport in Milwaukee. Punk doesn’t look too good but the footage shown was from early 2015 so we’ll have to see how he looks later on in the series.
This is part 1 of 4 and they will also chronicle some of the injury hurdles he’s had to overcome and they will address the skepticism and resentment that other fighters have of him because he is essentially walking into their sport with no prior experience. Punk was originally scheduled to debut in 2015 but injuries from his wrestling days caused delays. He is scheduled to face Mickey Gall next month at UFC 203.
One thing that is clear from watching the documentary is that his wife, AJ Brooks, is not a fan of his move into MMA but she is supportive of her husband. Part 2 will air on Monday night at 9pm eastern on Fox Sports 1.
