CM Punk Speaks On Dave Bautista’s Advice To Him About MMA And Negative Fans

WWE Champion
Former WWE Champion and current UFC fighter CM Punk recently spoke with Yahoo Sports about his MMA career. Here are the highlights.

On negative fans:

“The people who don’t like the UFC and want to see it fail are always going to find the negatives,” he said. “You hear them. They say, ‘Oh, they didn’t do this,’ or ‘They’re not doing this right.’ The people who like it are going to buy the pay-per-view, and I want to respect them and the other fighters and this sport by being as prepared as I can. But there’s always going to be people who don’t like it or who have a problem with it.”

“I love the sport, and I have for a long time,” he added. “I’d stay up late and watch the Pride New Year’s Eve shows. I watch all the UFC pay-per-views. I’m a fan. I love this stuff. Literally, I looked at it, and I said, ‘That’s something I want to do.’”

On Dave Bautista’s advice to him about joining the UFC:

‘You’ve got to do it. You’ve got to chase your dream. You’re going to wake up one day and realize that you were presented an opportunity, and you could have done it, but didn’t.’ So it’s a big reason,” Punk said.
