Chael Sonnen spoke with CBS Radio’s 106.7 The Fan DC this afternoon about CM Punk and his involvement in jiu-jitsu.
“Yeah, it’s good man,” Sonnen said. “I mean, he’s given some serious consideration to coming over here and competing and doing this. He’s talked about it a number of times, and I don’t think he will personally, but I know he’s prepared to for a very long time. It’s kind of the reverse Brock Lesnar. Brock Lesnar knew how to wrestle, came here and then went right into wrestling. I think that Punk is learning how to fight, and has visions of coming from wrestling over to fighting. So we’ll see how all that works out, but like he says, he’s the best in the world at what he does.”
Sonnen also discussed receiving offers from the sports entertainment world.
“I’ve been offered that and those guys have all called and I’ve talked to them but, I’m not for sale,” Sonnen said. “I’ve made my decision a long time ago and my loyalty is to Dana White and that’s never going to change.”
