CM Punk on ‘Bankrolled’ Lawsuit Against Him, Will the WWE Brass Tune in for His Fight?

CM Punk Talks About Leaving WWE, Joining UFC, His UFC Debut And Who He’ll Be Fighting

As we previously reported, CM Punk recently sat down with MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani ahead of his clash with Mickey Gall at tonight’s UFC 203 pay-per-view (PPV) event. You can check out some more highlights from the interview here:

On his journey to UFC 203:

“I’m just in a much better place. I had a lot going on, and I still do. There’s still stuff that I need to get out from underneath. It’s very hard to look towards the future when you’re forced to deal and stare at your past and stuff like that. I just want to be left alone in regards to my old life. I’ve got no problem talking about it and stuff like that, but some people just got to try to keep sucking you back in and won’t let you go.”

On the ‘bankrolled’ lawsuit against him:

“It’s designed to get me to spend money. That’s what it’s doing, so it’s just a source of stress that I just need to get out from under.” Punk continued, “I have good days and I have bad days. Yeah, there’s a finish line for sure, but it’s the way these things work. It’s a bunch of B.S.”

On if WWE brass will tune in for his fight:

“I doubt it. I don’t think so. Every single person in management always told me that, always went out of their way to tell me, that the weren’t fans of MMA, so I don’t imagine. Maybe they’ll watch because they’re secretly hoping I get beat up. Maybe.”
