UFC President Dana White revealed in an interview with Jim Rome that he would be talking with former WWE star CM Punk at UFC 181 this weekend in Las Vegas.
“He left the WWE for whatever reason, he’s a huge fan of the UFC, he’s been training for a few years now, and he’s interested in fighting. I’m interested in talking to him. … CM Punk is coming to the show this weekend, and we’re going to talk. You never know (if he can fight) until you get in there. I didn’t know if Brock could fight. I thought Brock was crazy for coming over here. But, the difference with Brock Lesnar is Brock was a world-class wrestler. I don’t know. We’ll see.”
