In a new interview with FOX Sports, Cathal Pendred doubts Punk will ever actually fight in UFC. Here is what Pendred, who has had social media beef with CM Punk in the past, had to say:
“I said it recently, just seeing his more recent interviews around the UFC and stuff, I feel like he’s not in it as much anymore. I don’t feel like his head is in it much anymore. Obviously, as he got deeper into the training and he got further down the line, he saw how much is involved in this and I think he realized he bit off more than he can chew.
You can even see it now, when he first announced he was doing this he was at nearly every UFC in Vegas as a guest fighter doing the Q&A’s and now he’s nowhere to be seen. I do think he’s kind of had a change of heart but the sad thing for him, the unfortunate thing for him is he said publicly he was going to do this. Unless he comes out and just buries his pride and says ‘hey guys, I bit off more than I could chew, this is too much for me, I jumped in at the deep end and I can’t swim’. We’ll have to see. I wouldn’t be surprised if he never fights.”
