CM Punk chats about his progress as a fighter and his outlook to make his UFC debut.
“Believe it or not, and I don’t ask, but everybody asks Duke (Roufus) ‘how is he doing?’, and Duke tells everybody that he thinks that my best area right now, is striking, believe it or not. It’s mind boggling to me. Striking was the one thing that I never did.”
“I’ve hit mitts before. I’ve done boxing before. But all the nuances you need to know, and everything you need to do with your feet and your head, the correct movement. That’s been the most challenging thing, aside from wrestling, but Duke says I’m doing okay, and Duke won’t lie to me.”
