CM Punk recently said on “The MMA Hour” that Dana White may have had a change of heart about CM Punk fighting again in the UFC. After Mickey Gall annihilated him White said Punk did not need to fight in the UFC again. Some fans were confused citing Punk had to overcome first fight jitters, acclimatize to the Octagon, and faced an upper tier opponent in Gall. Regardless, I would love to see him get a shot at redemption. My opinion doesn’t matter so here’s what Punk said:
“To me, yeah. But, that’s up to Dana. I had a good conversation with him. I told him, ‘If you want to cut me, I get it. But, I’m fighting whether it’s for you or somebody else.’ Now, I don’t got an agent or a manager. I’m like Bill Murray, just with a lot less money, less funny or as famous. But, I did tell him I want to fight again and we’re back at it, back to the drawing board. So, it’s up to him. He floated me an idea and we’re kind of going back-and-forth on it right now. I’m at the point where I want to get something on paper, so, you might be able to hear an announcement in the coming weeks. I really don’t know, there is no timetable, though. I don’t want to speak for him, but if he wanted to kill it, he would have killed it right then. But, you never know. And Dana is a friend of mine, so it’s always a weird thing because I grew up in wrestling taught not to trust promoters. So there is always that little thing. So until anything’s official, I don’t want to say what he’s thinking or saying. But, I am pretty confident that it will be in the UFC.”
Updates as soon as they are available. Stay tuned.
