When CM Punk left WWE, he attended some hockey games, got married, and eventually found a new career path: mixed martial arts. Because of his name, he was afforded the privilege of climbing the ladder all the way to the top without actually fighting his way up, and I mean that literally.

His first ever fight was on the main card of a UFC pay-per-view against Mickey Gall. He was utterly obliterated in just over two minutes. There was no single point the former pro wrestler looked competitive or even looked like he could be. Despite that, he stated a desire to come back for more.

Dana White, President of the UFC, told the AP he’s going to grant that request:

“I like that guy. He’s a good dude. He wants one more. He wants to get another shot. I’m going to give it to him.”

It will be at least a couple more months before Punk’s actually back in the cage fighting, so strap in for another wild ride that likely ends in relatively short fashion.
