Brock Lesnar Offers to Help Train CM Punk for UFC Debut

on

In a recent interview with Wisconsin News TMJ4, former WWE superstar and current UFC fighter Phillip “CM Punk” Brooks revealed that WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar has offered to help him train.
“I’ve talked to [Brock Lesnar] and he’s offered all his help, even if it’s just to bug him with a stupid question,” Brooks said.
“It’s cool to know he supports me. He’s a good guy to know, I think… I think MMA is pro wrestling. If you go back to the early 1900’s and the whole genesis of professional wrestling, and then you go back to the early beginnings of MMA, it was all pro wrestlers… The characters, the action, the media, the mouths. There’s a reason people are interested in this, whether it’s good or it’s bad, whether they love me or they hate me.”
Punk also discussed when his first fight with the company would likely take place.
“…I’m not sure [when I’ll make my UFC debut]. My attitude is I’d fight tomorrow, but I’d pretty much know the outcome. I’m on an accelerated path. This is college and I’m cramming four years of college into one year… I’ve been [at Roufusport] a little over one month now. Five more months we’re going to sit down and we’re going to talk, and we’re going to see where my weight’s at, we’re going to see how I feel. It’s no longer just up to me. It’s up to my coaches. This is just a guess, October, November, December. But we’ll see. I’m fully aware it could be later than that, could be earlier than that.”
Lesnar is a former UFC World Heavyweight Champion. He retired from MMA following a loss to Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 due to complications with diverticulitis.
There are ongoing rumors that he may be considering a return to UFC following WrestleMania 31, although those have yet to be confirmed by Lesnar himself.
