WWE: CM Punk tries his hand at UFC in new Gracie brothers video

Football News

CM Punk has always been a keen UFC enthusiast, with some even suggesting he may one day make his professional bow in the sport following his departure from WWE this year.

But while UFC President Dana White said back in March that he was open to CM Punk fighting in the MMA arena fans of the Chicago born Superstar have never had the chance to see Punk putting his UFC skills to the test - until now.

Appearing on The Gracie Breakdown, CM Punk helps the co-hosting brothers to explain how a recent UFC bout between Luke Rockhold and Micheal Bisping ended in a guillotine submission move.

You can check out the video at the bottom of the article.

Punk is on offer to help demonstrate a number of complex moves performed by Rockhold and is clearly no novice when it comes to the intricacies of MMA fighting as he recreates them with ease.

As well as getting in the thick of the action on the mats, the now former WWE star shows his extensive knowledge of the sport when commenting on the recent match up. WWE fans hoping for a shock comeback to the WWE ring in the future however may be concerned at just how much attention he has clearly been paying to UFC rather than the sports entertainment business.

Future plans

Towards the end of the video (around the 11.20 mark) the Gracie brothers reveal that Punk had visited their facility to have a training session with them, but in all likelihood this is simply a way for the wrestler to keep in good shape as he continues life away from the WWE.

Having recently been revealed as a guest writer for Marvel Comics it certainly looks like Punk is keeping himself busy following his official departure from the company back in the summer.

Seeing him wrestler, albeit in UFC circumstances rather than in a packed out WWE arena, does though make us wish that things had turned out different between himself, Vince McMahon and the WWE hierarchy regarding his position within the organization.

It certainly looks like he as the intensity, skill set and physical capability to dominate in the ring.
