CM Punk On The Time He Got Confronted By Nate Diaz

Former WWE star CM Punk recently shared a story on the first time he met Nate Diaz. Punk ran into Diaz while attending UFC 200 in July, a few months before he would make his UFC debut at UFC 203 in September.

“UFC 200 I was doing an autograph signing and the guy I was signing the autograph for started like pointing behind me and I heard someone like yelling my name and I turned around and I was on a riser and Nate Diaz was on the ground and he was like ‘hey man come here’. I was like ‘what’s up?’ and he was the nicest (expletive) guy.”

“I don’t know if he’ll get mad and this will ruin the image of Nate Diaz, but he was like ‘hey man, I talked some (expletive) before and I don’t know you and I’m sorry’ and he’s like, ‘Gilbert (Melendez) and Ronda (Rousey) said that you’re a cool dude and they love you’ and I started looking around for the cameras. I was like all right. I thought that was super, super cool of him. Super nice guy.”

Punk went on to lose his MMA and UFC debut in September. He was submitted in the first round of his fight against Mickey Gall by rear-naked choke.

Despite losing his debut fight, Punk still has high aspirations in the sport of MMA. Punk has recently said he plans to fight again in the near future.
