It’s fair to say Chael Sonnen is pulling out all the stops for his UFC on Fox 2 fight against Mark Munoz, even welcoming a special guest for his walkout.
WWE superstar and current WWE champion C.M. Punk will accompany Sonnen to the cage on Jan 28 when he fights Munoz in Chicago.
The news was first reported on Twitter by FrontRowBrian, who stated that Punk would be alongside Sonnen for the fight in Chicago.
Punk is a regular follower of MMA and according to sources has become friends with Sonnen over the last few months.
C.M. Punk is a native of the Chicago area and will definitely pull in the local crowd as he escorts Sonnen to the cage on Jan 28.
Sonnen faces Munoz in a No. 1 contender’s match to determine the next challenger to Anderson Silva’s middleweight title.
