Chael Sonnen Talks About CM Punk Going from Wrestling to Fighting and More

– UFC star Chael Sonnen recently spoke with CBS Radio’s 106.7 The Fan DC about CM Punk and his involvement in jiu-jitsu:

“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 discussed receiving offers from the sports entertainment world:

“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.”

  • Sean Kaboni

    “best in the world at what he does” im pretty sure thats chris jericho.

    Punk vs Jon Jones

    I think Punk might be letting his gimmick get to his head alittle. He doesn’t have a whole lot of experience other than some kickboxing lessons and jiu-jitsu classes. MMA fighters are legit badasses. Plus he’s already on the upper end of his 30s. Maybe getting his face knocked in would be good for his huge ego. Apparently MMA did wonders for humbling Batista.
