After walking out on the promotion, ex-WWE Champion CM Punk decided to sign a multi-fight deal with the UFC back in 2014 and embark in a career in mixed martial arts (MMA). Despite dedicating two years of his life to prepare for his inaugural bout, Punk dropped a first round submission loss to young welterweight prospect Mickey Gall at UFC 203 this past September.
Although he seems to be fully dedicated to his new career choice, there is currently a high demand for “The Cult Of Personality” in the professional wrestling world. Global Force Wrestling’s Jeff Jarrett recently took part in a media call earlier this week and was asked if he has reached out to Punk regarding a possible signing. Check out what he had to say here:
“No, CM Punk, to my knowledge, no conversations that I’ve certainly had,” Jarrett said. But also [inaudible] my understanding he’s signed to a UFC situation and that’s where his energy is heading. Unbelievable talent. And I’ve said it when it first came out, hats off to the guy to step into that Octagon. Win, lose or draw, he’s a winner in my book for chasing his dreams.”
