CM Punk’s dream of becoming a UFC fighter turned into a bit of a nightmare when he stepped into the cage against the relatively green Mickey Gall and still got creamed in just over two minutes. For anyone else, that’d probably be a reality check moment, but Punk has continues to train with the intention of fighting in MMA professionally. The big question: would it be in the UFC or outside of it?
For a while UFC president Dana White sounded like he wasn’t too interested in letting the pro wrestler back into the Octagon, but in the leadup to UFC 220, he’s apparently had a change of heart.
“I like that guy. He’s a good dude,” White told the Associated Press. “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.”
