After leaving the WWE back in 2014, CM Punk set his sights on an MMA career. His run in the UFC didn’t work out, however, after losing two matches in a row. At this moment, the Second City Saint is still under contract with the UFC, but the company’s president, Dana White, said after his last fight that he would probably never fight for them again.
That doesn’t mean he’s leaving the MMA world completely, though. It’s been announced that Punk will be joining Cage Fury Fighting Championships as a commentator. Back in 2010 when a hip injury prevented him from competing, Punk worked the commentary desk for Monday Night Raw, so this wouldn’t be his first shot at this kind of position.
If all things go well, Punk could find himself as part of the commentary team for the UFC. After all, CFFC is a known affiliate of the UFC, bringing them a handful of talent over the years.
The UFC will host CFFC’s first-ever event on UFC Fight Pass where CM Punk will make his debut for CFFC as a color commentator on December 14th.
