CM Punk To Undergo Surgery, His MMA Debut Pushed Back

v
CM Punk, who was set to make his UFC debut against Mickey Gall in either June or July, revealed on Wednesday that he will have to undergo back surgery to repair a herniated disc in his neck. According to Punk, his doctors told him before last Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 82 event that he would have to undergo surgery.

“My back has always bugged me,” Punk said to MMA Fighting.com. “Figured it was just wrestling s***. Turns out it was. It got bad enough to the point where I couldn’t do anything the week before I went to train with the New Jersey Devils last month. One day I could manage, the next day I couldn’t. I’ve been in agony for almost a month. Chiropractor, acupuncture, massage, cryotherapy … nothing worked.

Punk said to MMA Fighting that he wanted to keep the news quiet.

“This is just a bump in the road. I’m positive about this.”

His post-surgery recovery is expected to be four-to-six weeks and he still plans to fight in 2016. He signed with the UFC in December of 2014.

    When I read this, I rolled my eyes so hard that I swear I saw my brain. He’ll end up retiring before he debuts.

    CM Junk is a joke. I believe his sheep have now realized that I’ve been right all along.

    • MikeLo #NewNation

      But you’re never right ?

      • It Begins kid

        Lol

      • Lisa

        Even before his retirement, wasn’t I always right by saying Daniel Bryan was dead wood? Wasn’t I right on Monday morning when I said he was gonna retire?

        • Zargabanth

          Whoa whoa don’t get too proud of yourself there bimbo. so you guessed something right that EVERYBODY had been speculating on for months big deal.dosent change the fact that you are still the same bimbo idiot that kept on saying over and over that Batista was going to win the title at WM30 because it was”in his contract”.you kept saying it like you were some industry insider. so laughable .just go back to bridge you were hiding under TrolLisa.

          • Lisa

            I actually do remember saying that. Let’s just say that plans can always change in WWE.

          • Zargabanth

            Not if its in a legal binding contract you stupid twit.

          • Lisa

            You’re a fool. Terms of a contract can be revised.

          • Zargabanth

            Ya ok sure trolLisa whatever you say.keep posting on here acting like you know what you are talking about when you don’t. We all enjoy reading your bimbo idiot posts.

        • Buss da 6’1

          That makes no sense

          • Lisa

            In short, I predicted Daniel Bryan’s demise.

          • Fred Rogers

            Along with pretty much everybody else.

          • Lisa

            It was only Bryan’s career that ended this week.

          • HOAK KOGAAN

            BROTHER,SO MANY HATERS DUDE!

          • Lisa

          • HOAK KOGAAN

          • Lisa

            You suck.

          • Buss da 6’1

            Anybody can get hurt at anytime

        • josh

          Guys I’m going to make a prediction of my own. One day John Cena will retire from wrestling. You heard it here first.

          • Lisa

            That’s a terrible prediction. For Bryan I clearly stated that he was never going to wrestle again. I said he was done. And I even predicted that he was gonna do it on Raw.

          • josh

            Still predicting it. Beat you to the punch dude.

          • Lisa

            That’s not a prediction.

          • josh

            We will see when he retires one day. You’ll kick yourself for not saying it first. :)

          • Lisa

            That’s not a prediction. It’s like predicting you will die one day.

          • josh

            What is this “die” you speak of?

          • Lisa

            Loss of life. It’s guaranteed to happen. We just don’t know when.

          • josh

            Oh come on Lisa. Lighten up. Take a joke. You’re such a downer all the time.

          • Lisa

            I’m a downer? Lol.

    • Edynol

      Funny how you were a fan of his a few months ago. How many times are you going to see-saw?

      • Lisa

        You must be referring to my impostor. I’ve been on this site for many years and anyone that knows me knows I have always hated CM Junk.

        • It Begins kid

          Not surprised you commented on a Punk article.

          • Lisa

            I hate that overrated wasp.

          • Someguy

            Whatever.-_-

          • siddus

            Hate, yet can’t stop discussing. Hmm

  • HOAK KOGAAN

    Brother,Punk is stalling dude. If he wins brother,its because it was probably set up that way dude,because hes seen as a draw brother…

  • MEH

    I’m wondering if he’ll turn up if u choose him in the new video game?

  • That boy Alejandro

    This guy used to be my favorite wrestler from 2009 to the day he walked out. He’s never debuting, just gonna keep making excuses.

    • http://NUNAYSHON.com Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

      How is this an excuse…he needs surgery…

      • That boy Alejandro

        You’re right bruh my mistake

        • http://NUNAYSHON.com Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

          You know why I’m sayin because if he had an option to not have surgery he probably would still be training for his debut bout

          • That boy Alejandro

            Yeah i understand bruh. Excuses was not the right word.

    • Damian Starr

      Yes because back surgery is such an enjoyable experience…

  • Mean Dean

    Pretty sure I called this like every time they talked about him making his debut

  • Tickle Monster

    CM Punk “Lost his smile.”

  • Fat Owens Fat

    Saw his opponent make another guy submit in a min, tries to chicken out with an #Injuryoutofnowhere
