Considering his relatively poor showing at his first UFC fight, many people did not expect to see CM Punk fight again for the promotion. But it looks like something is brewing for Punk and the UFC.
During a recent appearance on The MMA Hour Punk revealed that he is definitely going to fight again - and if it isn't for UFC it will be somewhere else. But, he also teased a plan that he and Dana White have in the works:
"That's up to Dana. I had a good conversation with him. I told him 'Hey, 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 have an agent, I don't have a manager. I'm like Bill Murray, just with a lot less money and not as funny or as famous. But I told him I want to fight again. We're back at it, we're back to the drawing board. It's up to him. He floated me an idea and we're kinda going back and forth on it right now. I'm at the point where I kind of want to get something on paper. You might hear an announcement in the coming weeks, I really don't know. There's no timetable on it."
"I'm pretty confident it will be in the UFC."
There has been no further information revealed about what the "idea" actually is, but when we know more, so will you.
