Dana White

The Associated Press is featuring an interview with UFC President Dana White addressing a number of topics including Phil “CM Punk” Brooks having another fight in the UFC and the possibility of current WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar making another return.

On CM Punk fighting again in the UFC:

“I like that guy. He’s a good dude. He wants one more. He wants to get another shot. I’m going to give it to him. He’s a completely different case than most normal human beings, so I’m going to give him another shot.”

White noted no date or opponent for Punk has been determined yet.

He also addressed the possibility of Brock Lesnar returning to the UFC.

“I think he’ll give it one more run. I just think Brock loves to fight.”


  1. why so that he can get embarrassed again? he has no business fighting in the ufc when you have fighters that have trained and fought for years to get to that mma level. i just don’t get why dana would give him a 2nd chance given what happened to punk the 1st time.

  2. I feel I understand: money, eyeballs, branding, etc. I don’t necessarily agree but I’m certain that’s why. Punk brings more eyeballs and visibility than many of those fighters who have trained and fought for years.

  3. and this is why the ufc has gone downhill over the years, because dana cares more about entertainment than skill.
