Phill Brooks, better known by his WWE moniker CM Punk, suffered two lopsided defeats inside the octagon. Following his two fight losing streak within the UFC, it would appear that CM Punk is likely not looking to re-enter the octagon.
Speaking on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, CM Punk offered his thoughts on the matter.
“I’m not ruling it out, but I’m also not throwing my name in a hat right away. Door’s open. … There’s absolutely no shame in taking a chance in your life. And I took a big chance. Even speaking about this now I feel like there’s finality to it, but I don’t want anybody to jump to conclusions and start making headlines.
“I’ve got to talk to (my MMA coach) Duke (Roufus). I need to get back to training and I plan on doing that as soon as I wrap up this movie. I look back at all of this.”
“I don’t think it’s UFC or bust, but I’m in a weird position. There’s other places out there, but it’s just like, ‘Would I go? Should I go?’ ‘Deserves’ has nothing to do with it, but I just look at everything like it boils my oyster and I’m not good enough to kind of pick and choose. I’m brutally honest. It probably doesn’t make a lot of sense for me to fight in the UFC again, but we’ll have to wait and see what happens.”
