CM Punk had two years of hype entering his MMA debut at UFC 203 but it’s taken less than 48 hours for everyone to jump off of the bandwagon.
UFC president Dana White was asked about the CM Punk “experiment;” his answer was very revealing.
“I don’t know if it was an experiment. I became friends with him. He’s a nice guy. I like him. I have a lot of respect for him and he wanted to give it a shot. I gave him his shot,” said Dana White.
This statement is very telling. For years many have assumed that Dana’s “friends” received preferential treatment but this is one of the rare occasions where White himself admits to it.
Dana also discussed where CM Punk goes after this loss, Punk is signed to a multi-fight deal, and how he sees his MMA future playing out.
