ROUFUS: PUNK HAS IMPROVED 200 PERCENT
My Take Below
Duke Roufus spoke about CM Punk current status and future.
“200 percent [better],” said Roufus. “I’m not even his coach. We were friends first before we did this. I would not do this with anyone else except for my friendship with him from before he decided to fight. He’s just one hell of a guy. He’s a celebrity but he’s different than a lot of celebrities I know. Great guy. He works his ass off. He’s very well-liked on our team and he’s improved a lot.” “Let’s face it, Mickey Gall was a tough draw,” said Roufus. “He’s done quite well in the UFC so far. I think the UFC did the right thing. We don’t want to defame the sport or damage it by putting him in an un-legitimate fight. That being said, it’s very hard. They want him to come in and beat somebody, ya know?” “We’re in the process of finishing up the bout agreement and the UFC’s gonna make the announcement soon,” said Roufus. “It’s a good match on both sides. Can’t confirm what date it is. Obviously we’re hoping it’s Chicago, to join Sergio and a bunch of our other teammates on that card.” }
As a long term CM Punk fan (WWE-UFC), I really hope he’s improved and that he wins his next fight. I agree with Duke Roufus that Mickey Gall was a tough opponent. I don’t agree with the way Punk chose to start his MMA career (straight away in the UFC) and he didn’t deserve to get this huge opportunity. But at the end of the day, he’s a big star and people wanna see him so it works out for the UFC as well. Imo he seems like a hard working guy so I guess...who knows he might’ve improved a lot now and might win his next fight. Also, depends on who is next opponent is and apparently that’s been picked so let’s see who it is.
