Dana White Praises CM Punk for Having 'the Balls' to Fight Again

Jackson looks at Punk as a lifelong fan of the sport - someone who admired what the fighters could do inside the Octagon and even took up an interest in training before receiving the offer of a lifetime.

CM Punk's lack of return to wrestling isn't for lack of desire. With all the talk over the last few weeks of Cody and The Young Bucks putting together "All In" and being the blueprint that other wrestlers should follow, I have been arguing that they have been following in Cabana's footsteps of the true example of how a wrestler does not to be part of a corporate machine to have a successful pro wrestling career.

Obviously, there's a natural connection between the two athletes given their respective histories in both MMA and professional wrestling. But on Thursday, Punk spoke to Aaron Bronsteter of TSN and gave a response that was far more cut and dry. "Nobody." Punk added, "[People have said] hey, if you ever wanna do anything... "Whaddaya say, yes or no?' Nobody's ever done that".

There was a lawsuit that pitted CM Punk and Colt Cabana against WWE doctor Chris Amann. "Unless it's a Stanley Cup Final or an occasional Cubs game, I don't think you'll see me surrounding myself in a sea of people".

Ronda is now scheduled to face Nia Jax for the Raw Women's Championship at Money in the Bank on June 17, while Punk's next UFC outing takes place this Saturday against Mike Jackson. Wrestling is in the rear view mirror.

The statement did not clarify whether the "partner force member" was part of the Somali or Kenyan armed forces. But the extremist group still carries out suicide attacks across Somalia.

"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". I kind of don't understand that.

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

"I can definitely tell you if you asked me that question a week ago when felt like I still had a foot in the grave so to speak, the answer is no I don't want anything to do with it". It's a wide open book, it's my story to tell.

He said: "Something might come up, some fun might be had". But right now my heart and my mind and my focus is 100% on Saturday and fighting. This doesn't mean I want to wrestle.
