    Meh... While obviously I understand the money grab side of this, it's disappointing the UFC and Dana are going this route. It contradicts so many previous positions Dana has publicly expressed. Dana obviously has no problem proving himself to be a hypocrite these days, but this affects more than just his perception, it looks bad on the UFC and the sport. It's one thing to bring in Lesnar. He had a legitimate competitive fighting background. CM Punk, as far as I know, is just an actor. He has no business in the UFC even if he's competing against someone equally inexperienced.

    There are bigger problems out there of course, just sad to see Dana continue to speak out of both sides of his mouth.

    Any cliffs of what they said? I'm watching the playoff game and can't really listen to it right now.

    I think they're talking just where his basics are so far.

    -Duke is impressed with Punks hunger and desire to learn
    -No opponent has been talked about yet
    -No decision on weight class
    -Duke likes that he's getting Punk from scratch and can mold him his way right away
    -The guys at Dukes have welcomed Punk with open arms

    First week he is working with Duke & the BJJ guy
    No bad habits & he is a sponge for learning
    Stays late & watches the more seasoned guys
    Bas thinks his signing to fight is a great thing

    Thanks. Sounds like the same kind of stuff Punk has been saying for a while about his opponent and the weight class.

    Interesting take though of molding punk from scratch. Didn't know he has never done any striking training I remember he did a little BJJ with the Gracie family.

    Don't laugh
    They talked about him going for the belt in two different weight classes














    of course they didn't you dolt. They are discussing how he did in his first taste of camp. You know why? Because media is interested in the journey.
    It is the first time we can experience something like this & it is interesting

    Enters thread about Punk's progress to say he doesn't care about his progress

    You know you can wait until you see a "UFC announces Punk's opponent" thread?
