FOX Sports has a new article with CM Punk. Punk commented on his decision to enter MMA and other pro wrestlers wanting to do the same:

“I definitely think part of that is what influenced this. There’s a lot of guys in pro wrestling that just kind of have this MMA fantasy and they never act on it. I’m acting on it.I don’t want to be one of those guys who sits there and goes, ‘I could have done that or I should have done that.’ I can, so I’m doing it.”

He also commented on his eventual MMA debut:

“I will be as prepared as I can be, 100 percent. Hypothetically, say I go in there and I get starched in 20 seconds, I’m sure somebody’s going to be on Twitter, ‘Oh you made a mockery of the sport!’ But you know what? F–k you, pal. I’m the one that’s in there. A big part of me doesn’t understand why people are so worried about it.”
