UFC.com is featuring an exclusive interview with UFC President Dana White where he talks about the reaction to signing former WWE star Phil “CM Punk” Brooks.

“The feedback has been both – it’s mixed. Some people love it, some people hate it. The people who are opposed to it and bitching about it, I get it. Every fight that we do isn’t going to be everybody’s thing, but there will be people who want to watch him and those that don’t. He and I have become friends and he told me, ‘I’ve achieved some cool things in my life and I want to try the UFC. It’s not like I’m young enough to fight my way up in the smaller leagues. I’d like to come in and give it a shot and see what I got.'”
