Phil “CM Punk” Brooks has been front and center in the MMA media ever since it was announced he had signed with the UFC. Everyone wants to know when the former WWE heavyweight champion is going to fight and whom.
Everyone is going to have to wait a good bit longer, however, as Punk isn’t moving that fast into his first MMA fight.
He recently selected a fight camp, which is Roufusport, where he will train under Duke Roufus alongside UFC champion Anthony Pettis and ONE FC champion Ben Askren. But there are still a lot of variables to settle on.
For one, training consistently has drastically reduced his weight, so Punk still hasn’t determined what weight class he will fight in. And until that happens, there is no determining an opponent, which Punk said in a recent interview on Inside MMA is about six months off.
Check out what Punk had to say about starting his training at Roufusport, his weight class, determining his opponent, and much more in this AXS TV video.
