CM PUNK TALKS NEXT UFC FIGHT

By Mike Johnson on 2017-01-31 09:19:00

While at the NHL All Star weekend in Los Angeles, former WWE champion turned UFC Fighter CM Punk was interviewed by FOX Sports about what's next for his fighting career.  Punk said he was working hard to be ready for his next fight and has pitched potential opponents to Dana White but hasn't heard if and when his next fight is.  Punk said that perhaps White was waiting for a fight card in Chicago but reiterated that he intended to fight again, whether it be with UFC or elsewhere.

The UFC situation is interesting because Punk drew a huge surge of interest (and PPV buys) for his debut back in September 2016 and obviously UFC doesn't want that to end up under another fight group's umbrella.
