Former WWE wrestler CM Punk — real name Phil Brooks — signed with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) back in late 2014, but cautioned mixed martial arts (MMA) fans that he was going to need some time before making his Octagon debut.
Boy, he wasn’t kidding.
Here we are nearly two years later and Punk has yet to be scheduled for a fight. Partly because he’s never competed in combat sports, but mostly because he can’t stay healthy, which is the kind of thing that’s normal for 37-year-old ex-wrestlers.
Brooks is currently recovering from back surgery.
The good news is, the promotion already found him an opponent, now all we need is a firm date for their fight and the “haters” will finally shut up. Punk has his eye on UFC 205 in New York, but then again, so do a lot of folks on the UFC roster.
See you in November?
