Okay, so many of the MMA collective lost their minds when they heard that the UFC really did sign “fake” wrestler CM Punk. No opponent, event, or timeline was given for the former WWE champion’s Octagon debut, but several potential opponents came out of the woodwork when Joe Rogan dropped the Punk bomb.
Michael Bisiping, Al Iaquinta, Derek Brunson and numerous others opted into the CM Punk sweepstakes, but hey, we already know the UFC is thinking outside the box here, so why not go way outside the box?
Why not get CM Punk to fight a Mighty Morphin Power Ranger? Why not the Green Ranger?
No, we’re not making this up. Jason David Frank (aka the Green Ranger) took to social media to throw his name in the hat as well.
Although it’s rather unlikely that the UFC would go to such lengths, Frank isn’t without a basis for his pitch. He is a seventh degree black belt in Karate, and also holds a purple belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Plus, Frank is 4-0 in mixed martial arts.
It may be unlikely, but many thought that the signing of Punk was just as unlikely… stranger things have happened. Does, um, Kimbo Slice ring a bell?
