Dana White on CM Punk fighting in the UFC

Could CM Punk ever end up fighting in the UFC now that he's walked out on WWE? It seems a highly unlikely proposition but it's worth asking the President of the UFC, Dana White. Here's his answer.


CM Punk could be successful in MMA, says Rener Gracie

"With the little time he’s had with me spread out over so many years, he’s made remarkable progress. There’s no telling how successful he would be if he devoted himself full time to the training. He can go get some fights, knock some fools out and choke some dudes. If he dedicates himself full time, there is no limit. He has the intangibles."

In an interview with Fox Sports, Rener Gracie, CM Punk's Brazilian jiu-jitsu trainer, says the WWE star has no limits if he decides he wants to do MMA. At 35-years-old it seems unlikely, but crazier things have happened. Batista actually won his MMA debut back in October of 2012 at the age of 43. Then again, he claimed to want to fight again and never did. Stay tuned, as always. And for all the latest news and notes on CM Punk leaving WWE click here.

Jim Ross on Brock Lesnar UFC return rumors

"Rumor of the week is Brock Lesnar returning to UFC. I find that one a little far fetched. Diverticulitis isn't something that is to be taken lightly, of this I know what I speak, and returning to the Octagon under those circumstances makes zero sense to me. Brock has a sweet gig in WWE working a handful of dates a year for which I assume is a healthy, 7 figure income. It's a part time gig of which Brock is very good at and earning that kind of money is a bird's nest on the ground. Unless an athlete was broke as hell, and Brock isn't, there is no legit motivation to return to the Octagon and give it one more shot."

Jim Ross writes in his blog that he's firmly in the camp of those doubting Brock Lesnar will be making a return to the UFC, as has been rumored recently and not exactly denied by promotion President Dana White. It's hard to argue with Ross here. Lesnar has a cushy gig with WWE right now and the only reason to mess with that would be to make another big run at the top in MMA, something Lesnar doesn't seem to be motivated enough or equipped for. Still, rumors persist so we'll continue to play the wait-and-see game.
