MMAFighting.com is featuring highlights of WWE Champion CM Punk appearing on “The MMA Hour” podcast earlier today with host Ariel Helwani. Punk talked at length about Dave Bautista’s MMA debut this past weekend.
“It’s definitely a bucket-list kind of thing. I think it’s awesome, too. Dave just wanted the experience. He wanted to fight even if it was just one time. It was something that he wanted to do. He loves it so he put his mind to it and did it, and I think that amazing. I don’t think anybody can criticize that. He has no delusions of grandeur. He’s not trying to get a big, fat UFC contract. He’s not trying to coast on his name from the WWE. He’s just fighting because he wanted to experience it.”
