In an interview with Chad Dukes and Lavar Arrington this afternoon, UFC President Dana White was asked by CBS Radio DC 106.7 The Fan’s Chad Dukes about the rumors of CM Punk’s possible interest in entering the world of MMA. While White said that he and Punk had never discussed Wrestling or Punk fighting in the UFC, he wasn’t counting out the possibility of the door being open for Punk should he ever decide to try his hand at mixed martial arts.

White: “We have literally never talked about business. I like him. He’s a fan. I’ve heard rumors out there, and he and I have been around each other and been together,  he has never ever, I’ve never talked to him about wrestling and he’s never talked to me about fighting. I have no idea.”

Dukes: “Would you be open to it?”

White: “Um. I mean, yeah. I guess if he wanted to fight, I’d talk to him about it.”

Check out the full audio of the interview below. You can find the question about CM Punk at 5:31.
