When asked if Punk’s attitude surprised him, Pettis said, “Yes, for sure. I just didn’t know what to expect. You see him on TV. I met him a couple times. You really don’t know what to expect from anybody.”
Pettis continued, “He came into the gym, you come into the practice room and you have two world champions on the floor, you have CM Punk, you have one of the most Olympic level wrestlers and everybody is just training together. Everybody blends in and there’s no superstar. There’s no one person who gets more attention.”
“It’s just a team full of guys that all want to get better,” Pettis concluded.
