Dana White Comments On CM Punk, Brock Lesnar Possibly Signing With UFC


UFC President Dana White recently commented about some current and former WWE Superstars possibly coming into the fold in the UFC.

Celebrity-gossip website TMZ caught up with the UFC boss, who was asked for his thoughts on former WWE Superstar CM Punk possibly joining the UFC now that he is free and clear from WWE.

“He is a big fan and I like him very much. He’s a great dude,” said White. “I don’t know if he can fight or anything like that but sure, I wouldn’t mind talking to CM Punk.”

White was also asked if the UFC would be interested in signing former UFC Heavyweight Champion and current WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar if he becomes free from WWE when his current contract expires in early-2015.

“If and when his deal if up with them and he wants to fight, I’m, sure he’ll call me,” said White.

With the big UFC 181: Hendricks vs. Lawler 2 and Pettis vs. Melendez PPV coming up soon, make sure to check out MMANews.com leading up to the 12/6 event date.
