In the first several weeks since CM Punk’s debut in the UFC, there hasn’t much said about his future with the company. Punk has voiced his hopes about returning. In light of that, UFC president Dana White didn’t sound too optimistic about bringing him back.
Although it was impressive that Punk stepped into the octagon, he showed his lack of experience. He was overly aggressive that allowed for Mickey Gall to take advantage of it for a quick defeat. In many ways, it was disappointing to see how fast he failed in his first match.
This may not mark the end of Punk’s MMA career as he has an open invitation to join Alberto Del Rio’s company. There’s clearly on his end to continue to pursue his aspirations in the octagon. All in all, only time will tell if he will get another chance.
