MMAfighting.com is reporting that current WWE Champion CM Punk will be escorting UFC fighter Chael Sonnen to the octagon during UFC on FOX 2 in Chicago, IL at the United Center. Punk and Sonnen would not confirm the story when contact as this was according to sources close to Sonnen’s camp.

“According to the same sources, Punk will not corner Sonnen during the fight. He will simply walk Sonnen to the cage, much like former WWE champion Batista did with Manny Pacquaio prior to “Pac Man’s” May 2009 bout against Ricky Hatton.”
