In this world, there aren’t many things as certain as death and taxes. One thing fans of MMA and Pro Wrestling alike can count on though is Ariel Helwani visiting CM Punk every January ahead of the UFC’s visit to Chicago. It’s become a neat little tradition and hopefully it’s something that continues for years to come.
In this interview Punk opens up about everything from his current contract to the possibility of crossing over into MMA. He also clears up that whole Michelle Beadle – AJ Lee situation from the recent Tribute to the Troops show, weighs in on rumors of Brock Lesnar’s potential return to the UFC, goes into how the launch of the WWE Network and how it could effect pay, lets us know who would win in a grappling contest between himself and Batista, and much, much more. It’s a phenomenal interview regardless of your opinions on Punk. You can check it out in it’s entirety below.
