In an interview with CBS Radio’s 106.7 The Fan DC, UFC fighter Chael Sonnen spoke about the possibility of his friend CM Punk getting into MMA.
He said: “Yeah, it’s good man. I mean, he’s given some serious consideration to coming over here and competing and doing this. He’s talked about it a number of times, and I don’t think he will personally, but I know he’s prepared to for a very long time. It’s kind of the reverse Brock Lesnar. Brock Lesnar knew how to wrestle, came here and then went right into wrestling. I think that Punk is learning how to fight, and has visions of coming from wrestling over to fighting. So we’ll see how all that works out, but like he says, he’s the best in the world at what he does.”
Sonnen also revealed that he has received offers from several pro wrestling organizations.
He added: “I’ve been offered that and those guys have all called and I’ve talked to them but, I’m not for sale. I’ve made my decision a long time ago and my loyalty is to Dana White and that’s never going to change.”
