    What is your reaction? I think that Pettis is trying to be nice and he sees that CM Punk is willing to learn.

    Well Pettis is probably trying to be as diplomatic as possible. When you become a champ in this org you kinda have to.

    I hope he is working double time on taking people down because jiu-jitsu is very hard to implement this day and age because of so many good wrestlers not to mention so many are very good at defending.

    He picked a good camp to train with. They are probably going to dunk his ass in the deep end of the pool. Let the beatings commence.

    Sounds like he has a good attitude, but if a 36 year old will start training MMA and then wait until his team tells him he is ready to make his debut in the UFC, it kind of sounds like it's something that will not happen ever.

    Still a joke to the hardcore fans

    They signed a guy with no experience and that needs time to be ready,

    If CM Punk does make his debut fight. He should fight a guy who is 0-0 in amatuer/pro, but with background in learning martial arts.

    Everything they say is probably true, but it would make more sense if they were getting the guy ready for some fight at a backwoods Casino in northern Minnesota. This is for his first UFC fight in his late 30's with no competition background. Lol.

    2 guys with 0-0. One of the biggest MMA fights in 2015.

    I think Dana should make CM Punk compete on the next season of The Ultimate Fighter, that way he gets to fight other up and comers and at the same time save that shit show from its abysmal ratings. CM needs another year or so until he's even at TUF level but I say he should have to prove himself first and shouldn't be fed to the lions just yet. Really, who do you book to fight him? Who could he actually beat at MW? Ed Herman? Andy Enz? Tom Watson? I really don't see this ending well for him. He would have been better off as a commentator.

    I feel like Pettis is an all round nice guy and no hater, but also not a liar. To read between the lines a bit, he isn't training with the team, and his striking is shite. But other than that he's keen and has left his ego at the door, but notice that is phrased as "first step". Not progress, not development, but first step. Diplomatic, but hardly encouraging of his progress

    Obnoxious misleading title by TS. Pettis says Punk has the right attitude to do great. He doesn't say he has the skills to do great. If we went by attitude, imagine the bronies they let into the UFC.

    I wonder if a commission would sanction a fight with Minowaman
