CM Punk was on The HERD with Colin Cowherd and he spoke about the ups-and-downs he’s gone through to begin his UFC career and what he expects from his UFC debut.
“I know people think this is a publicity stunt, I’m never going to set foot in the Octagon,” he acknowledged. “I look forward to proving them wrong, but to me, it’s not super far-fetched to be like, ‘You know what? What if I put three or four wins together? Who’s to say I don’t get a title shot?’
“I’m a very positive thinking person. Of course I’m not going to saddle myself with this negativity that’s, ‘Oh, that’s it for me’. Because to me in life, it’s so cliche and it sounds so corny, so Karate Kid-like, but it’s not about getting knocked down. It’s about how many times you get up. That’s why I train the way I do. I get knocked down in training every day, so on Sept. 10th I won’t get knocked down.”
The doubters that said CM Punk would never step foot in a UFC octagon are 3 months from being proved wrong but as we’ve seen in MMA, a lot can happen in 3 months.
