>When he’s asked if he is anxious or intimidated to make the transition from professional wrestling (where the punches are performed) to MMA (where the punches have malicious intent), he pushes back. His tone is even, but testy. His smirk seems strained.
Punk: I get this question a lot, and it's like you guys think I'm an idiot. Like I didn't know MMA wasn't pre-determined or something like that. Have you ever tweeted at me, "Hey, do you know what you're getting into?"
Wong: I never have.
Punk: Okay. It sounds like you might have.
Wong: I don't mean to put you on the defensive...
Punk: I'm not on the defensive. Your question is insulting. You're asking me if I know the difference between the WWE and the UFC?
Wong: That's not what I'm asking.
Punk: That's exactly what you're asking. You say my fans say that? You're mistaken. My fans do not say that. I wouldn't say anything to them [my critics]. I don't justify stupidity with an answer. I don't give a shit what anybody thinks of me, whether I'm going to fight or not. I know what I'm going to do. If I did anything in my life based on someone's negative opinion on me, I would never fucking leave my house. My fans are people who don't tweet negative shit at me.
>He expresses resentment, pointing towards the recorder near the end of the interview, nervous that I’ll edit the tape, and run a hatchet job on him. One can empathize with the sentiment. Punk gets up, shakes my hand, and gives me a pat on the back. His handler motions for Punk to come with him, and I’m escorted in the opposite direction. I’m told later that Punk has no interest in talking to me ever again.
>Never drew a penny
>Most laughable "fighter" in UFC history
This scrub has no business in MMA and will get crushed quickly IF he ever steps up to fight.
>Think he really regrets just walking out?
Probably not. That whole staph infection business justifies it.
>Cause realistically, how many years could he do this UFC thing, if he so happens to be good?
He's signed for 8 fights. So if he fights once a year that's 8 more years, which by then he'll be in his mid-40s. 2 fights a year would still put him over 40 by the time he's done with his contract. Punk is already 10 years older than your average UFC fighter, by the time he has his last fight he'll probably be like 20 years too old.
>where the punches have malicious intent)
But they don't. They mostly just want to win from a professional standpoint. They don't want to genuinely harm eachother, they're all just doing their jobs.
>he gets mad for getting asked the same question every day for over a year
>people still act like he does't know shit about mma
This guy is now in training for almost a year and is known go get pissed off pretty easy. We're talking about a guy who lefts his workplace after getting fucked over multiple times and still gets shit for leaving.
KEK, same shit different script. The fighting in UFC is definitely real but so was boxing and that certainly didn't stop promoters from attempting to fix outcomes as much as they could. He'll face a bunch of 1 win nobodies so he can say he's beaten a whole bunch of undefeated fighters and then he will be fed to someone they actually want to make money off of.
This thread is fucking retarded.
None of you actually heard any full interviews of him. You just blindly followed what the guy next to you said and took it as truth.
I swear you're shit-eating sheep. Typical WWE fans to be honest, and the reason WWE will never improve/never die
Oh my god, he sounds like a bitch. Insecure as fuck. All he had to do was say "no". That's literally all he needed to say.
Funny how he thinks the guy needs to edit the tape to make him sound bad after a bitchfit like that. Worst thing he can do to him is NOT edit it out.
hes going to get BTFO wif he moves up the card. He already has a money match in the making if he wants competition.
Even when he was still wrestling, Punk was well known as a moody prick, both backstage to other wrestlers and on the street to fans. That doesn't change the fact that he was a pretty good wrestler, but he definitely isn't the guy to approach for pictures. Approaching him is/was always a crapshoot, with him either begrudgingly signing an autograph or telling you to fuck off, based on his whim.
A literal nobody who hasn't been on a PPV in years, who has lost half of his fights since like 2012?, and who nobody cares about other than people who pay attention to meme fighters, and on top of that an irresponsible druggy who would have been fired if it wasn't for Dana's boner for having people with attitude in UFC
The amount of whining that cunt has done since Punk's signing shows how jealous he is
>A literal nobody
lel diaz brothers are favorites
>who hasn't been on a PPV in years
main event fox cards because he brings views
>who has lost half of his fights since like 2012?,
yea about a 50-50 record but he got robbed quite a few times, his fault for letting it go to judges decision.
> been fired if it wasn't for Dana's boner for having people with attitude in UFC
lel dana fucking fears the diaz brothers thats why he didnt book them for a while because they are real niggas that wouldnt budge but were draws so they finally came to an agreement.
>how jealous he is
he makes good arguments, a fucking amateur coming in and getting a contract while fighters are out there trying to make it have a shit on of fights.
that is an incredibly lame question to ask though.
That is the equivalent of asking an actor while doing their press, how it felt doing the movie? Its a stupid question that has been asked a lot that will only get the same answer. If it was the first time asked, then that would be legit, but its not.
During every interview, this question is asked. its a stupid question that can't get an interesting answer
Yeah, his personality seems to have rubbed off on her.
Shame really, she used to seem like a total sweetheart before they got together.
hold up let me find it.
oh its no touching but the photo does look off
That's pretty standard and acceptable all things considered. You don't even get to touch Divas and female wrestlers even on signing events.
It's nowhere near snobbing her fans or something you guys are making up or something.
I'd post a pic but my phone won't let me, he's fighting Mickey gall. A much younger, leaner, and experienced fighter.
This fight will be like an episode of bully beatdown with punk getting his ass beat. If he wins, the kid is just taking a dive.
punk is the biggest entitled B I T C H in the history of pro wrestling. no guy thinks he's a bigger deal than himself. just bc little kids and internet nerds think you're cool does not make you all that great. pretty sure he never graduated high school either, but he'll be damned if he isn't an expert at everything
HHH is going to be through the roof, he should get big Dave to hang out with him during Punk's match too.
>i don't give a fuck
>look at me guys i dont care
>negative opinions don't bother me
>sensitive as fuck and ready to sperg out at a moments notice
Do you think these two posts explain why Punk has complete fear in his eyes? Everyone knows he is too old to see out his contract. He's pressing being too old to start his contract. People must be telling him that Dana knows that he will never get 8 fights out of Punk.
Maybe the biggest draw is to see him getting destroyed in the very first one.
this is Punk's problem. He will never be able to throw a punch like a real fighter, because he is a performer, and he is personally averse to channelling aggression and negativity.
(Except out through his mouth on those 'awesome' worked shoot pipebombs)
Couldn't get past the obvious bias from the very beginning.
If this dude can describe so much about a person within five seconds of meeting them, why is he a ufc reporter and not a psychologist?
Give me a fucking break, this is a man who obviously is someone who is less than thrilled that cm punk is where he is.
>ywn fall in love with a kind hearted qt and eventually corrupt her, turning her into a douchebag like yourself
"So, Punk - how are you preparing for UFC?"
"What the fuck man what the fuck question is that? Can't you see I am preparing hard? My beard is going to be the most intimidating in UFC. Think 'Lesnar meets Kimbo Slice' levels of TOUGH. I feel sorry for whoever has to fight me and my beard."
Smarks FINALLY beginning to realize how neckbearded and deluded their opinions were a couple of years ago.
>dumb obese neckbeard smarks literally shitting on ryback a couple of years ago and siding with cm crybaby
>Jordan quits basketball and starts playing baseball
>mocked and questioned for his choice
>Edgelord quits wrestling and signs to ufc
>gets basic softball and routine questions
>OMFG YOU ASSHOLES ARE OUT TO GET ME FUCK YOU YOU HAVE NO RESPECT
he is the embodiment of an angsty teenage girl
but the important thing is why people are watching, nobody is cheering him on, they want to see him get his shit kicked.
They will be putting him against a cream puff that also has no business being in the UFC in the hopes of giving him the best shot possible at winning. They can only pull that shit one or two times though, and when he finally loses his draw will be 100% gone
people are watching to see him fail, not to see how far he can go
maybe I wasn't clear. everybody is expecting him to win because dana is the king of jews and wants to milk this draw. He is going to fight someone that is probably 1-1 or 0-1 and has no business in the UFC. when he actually fights against a real fighter with more than 6 months of training he's going to be obliterated
