CM Punk did a recent interview talking about WWE and UFC here are some highlights:
on wanting to try MMA before he was too old
I definitely think part of that is what influenced this. There’s a lot of guys in pro wrestling that just kind of have this MMA fantasy and they never act on it. I’m acting on it. I don’t want to be one of those guys who sits there and goes, ‘I could have done that or I should have done that.’ I can, so I’m doing it.
on if Undertaker would have done UFC
A lot of guys say it. I think The Undertaker said it, I think there’s a ton of guys out there, if the money was different in the ’90s, they would have done it
I will be as prepared as I can be, 100 percent. Hypothetically, say I go in there and I get starched in 20 seconds, I’m sure somebody’s going to be on Twitter, ‘Oh you made a mockery of the sport!’. But you know what? F–k you, pal. I’m the one that’s in there. A big part of me doesn’t understand why people are so worried about it.
on how ready he is for MMA
I lose every day in the gym so when I step in the Octagon I don’t lose. Everything’s going to be 180 degrees from now until then. I’ll win my first fight for sure, but just getting there, walking in the Octagon, I think, is 100 percent a victory.
