CM Punk’s head coach was on UFC Unfiltered podcast. In the Interview his coasch said he’s more motivated than ever to put on a better performance.

CM Punk’s UFC debut in at UFC 203 in September 2016, Punk has continued training in hopes of improving.

“(UFC President Dana White) and the matchmakers had their weekly matchmaking meeting yesterday, and we’ll get some news soon,” Roufus said on the UFC Unfiltered podcast. “Just think the first time you step in the Octagon, there’s something special you’ve got to deal with getting in there. For Punk, this sounds really weird, but now he knows what a beating feels like – a real beating.”

Now that he knows what a real beating feels like, he will most likely be more comfortable the next time he steps into the octagon, regardless of his opponent. Roufus said Punk has learned and grown from his experience.

“I think (a loss like Punk’s at UFC 203) will help a lot of fighters to the point of haunting them, like, ‘No, I don’t want to feel this way ever again,'” Roufus said. “It’s not the physical. These guys are tough. It’s the mental anguish. You don’t want to feel that depressing, embarrassing feeling of getting beat up in front of God and everyone. It’s no fun. It’s been great motivation for him.”
