Dana White Tells CM Punk to ‘Go Home’ to Wife; What it Means for His UFC Future

cm-punk-aj-ufcBy now the general public has seen CM Punk get wrecked by Mickey Gall in his UFC debut. Many people figured it’d be the last we’d see of Phil Brooks in the octagon but recent comments by Dana White say otherwise.

Dana discussed Punk’s future on a recent episode of the ‘UFC Unfiltered’ Podcast:

“So what I told him to do, go home, spend some time with your wife, be normal for a little while and we’ll get on the phone and talk,” White said. “Obviously we haven’t talked yet but we will, we’ll see what’s next.

Dana is leaving the door open for a ‘next,’ which is kind considering Punk didn’t land a significant strike in his first UFC appearance. Dana is chalking up the embarrassing performance to nerves.

“I don’t care how big of a superstar you are anywhere. If you were in the WWE but even if you were in PRIDE or you were in any of these other organizations out there, your first walk into that Octagon in a (expletive) sold out arena. Let me tell you, it will get anybody,” White said.

“Everybody gets those jitters the first time and we knew. I don’t ever throw cans at any of these guys that come from anywhere. You want to fight in the UFC, you’re going to fight a real guy and Mickey Gall might have been 2-0 but Mickey Gall is legit. That kid’s a tough kid, he’s a tough up and comer and I respect Punk for giving it a shot.”

Let the saga of CM Punk continue.
