Chael Sonnen credits Paul Heyman for saving TUF: Brazil 3

3

Paul was a guy that even without knowing him, I knew I could trust him. We have mutual friends, Brock Lesnar and C.M. Punk. I knew he was an expert in psychology and I was stuck, working through this spot, having to deal with this, [Wanderlei Silva] not talking to me and the reversal of roles that I didn't see coming. He told me, `Listen, you have to shoot on him. If he's not playing along, you have to drop everything and shoot on him.' He laid it out a lot more aggressive than that. `You have to drop everything and come clean.' He went into it a lot more detail than that. In many ways, Paul Heyman saved Ultimate Fighter (Brazil) 3. He kept his word. He kept his secrecy up. So not only should we thank Paul for the huge ratings, but we can also blame him for all the bad things.

Add Chael Sonnen to the growing list of Paul Heyman guys, as apparently he went to the booking genius for advice when Wanderlei Silva wouldn't work with him and follow his script ideas for the third season of the Brazilian version of UFC's The Ultimate Fighter "reality" TV show.

Dana White open to talking to CM Punk about fighting in the UFC

6

"We have literally never talked about business. I like him. He’s a fan. I’ve heard rumors out there, and he and I have been around each other and been together, he has never ever, I’ve never talked to him about wrestling and he’s never talked to me about fighting.

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

28

"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.
