Chael Sonnen on CM Punk, Pro Wrestling


One of the most colorful characters in the world of Mixed Martial Arts, Chael Sonnen appeared on 106.7 The Fan DC this afternoon to talk with our own Chad Dukes about his upcoming UFC 167 co-main event Fight with Rashad Evans. During the course of the interview, Sonnen was asked about his friend, the Best in the World, CM Punk. Sonnen had some interesting speculation about Punk’s involvement in jiu-jitsu:

“Yea, it’s good man. I mean, he’s given some serious consideration to coming over here and competing and doing this. He’s talked about it a number of times, and I don’t’ think he will personally, but I know he’s prepared to for a very long time. It’s kind of the reverse Brock Lesnar. Brock Lesnar knew how to wrestle, came here and then went right into wrestling. I think that Punk is learning how to fight, and has visions of coming from wrestling over to fighting. So we’ll see how all that works out, but like he says, he’s the best in the world at what he does.”

Sonnen also talked about receiving offers from the sports entertainment world:

“No, you know I’ve been offered that and those guys have all called and I’ve talked to em but, I’m not for sale.  I’ve made my decision a long time ago and my loyalty is to Dana White and that’s never going to change.”
