CM Punk Addresses Effects of $4 Million Lawsuit Ahead of UFC 225

Share

He spent the majority of the last week involved in a court room feud with WWE's doctor, Chris Amann, which resulted yesterday in Punk emerging with a resounding victory.

However, if you're willing to take a step back and remove the former WWE superstar's name from the fight, Jackson says you would see why he's so fired up and confident headed into this one. Well, maybe it is, but according to the man himself, he's never been made an offer.

This, as you can guess, led to people wondering if he just wants someone to send him a contract, and if the price is right, he'll do the professional wrestling thing again.

Former WWE Champion CM Punk is gearing up for his next pro-MMA fight. "A lot of people like to be mad at me about that and make fun of me because I lost my first fight, and it's like... that's fine, you're entitled to your opinion but you do not own me and I am entitled to do what I want to do, and that's what I'm doing". He has also been a wrestling reviewer since 2009 with over 5,000 full shows covered. They want to live my life for me.

"To be honest with you, in a year and a half's time [since his last fight] and you have to think who he is and his schedule, trying to find time to train, on top of just being almost 40 years old and being in professional wrestling, these are all variables that you have to consider". "They don't know me cause I don't have that kind of exposure".

"I'm not saying I'm Anderson Silva, I'm just saying the situation's similar where people have just not seen me".

"I love Terry Funk, he retired for the first time when I was two years old".

In speaking with MMAWeekly.com's Damon Martin, Punk discussed the lawsuit and how it affected his training for his UFC 225 bout with Mike Jackson, why he's returning to the octagon following his humble debut in the sport, and much more. [UFC] is where I live now. A lot of fans began thinking that he was trying to work them over and that it would all be a huge swerve to make his return to the wrestling ring even more of a surprise. Punk told Ariel Helwani, "nobody has ever asked me, like straight up asked me to come wrestle for them".

In the lawsuit, the judge cleared both Punk and Cabana and said that they do not have to pay any defamation charges to Amann.
