Image result for CM Punk

Dana White recently told the Associated Press that he’s working on giving CM Punk one more fight in the UFC: 

“I like that guy. He’s a good dude,” White said. “He wants one more. He wants to get another shot. I’m going to give it to him.”

While no date or opponent has been set yet, CM Punk continues to train for another fight:

Who will get to whoop his ass this time? Nah hope he does well, was a shame he got clowned in his first fight. He wasn't ready obviously. Another couple of years later and he surely could beat another newcomer. Would be good for him to get a win under his belt to restore some credibility.

 Floyd Mayweather told us he's dead serious about fighting in the UFC ... and now, he says he's taking the most important step to make sure that happens -- getting a license. 



We got Floyd in L.A. earlier this week ... and he told TMZ Sports he's planning to submit the paperwork to get licensed as a pro MMA fighter. We're guessing he's eyeing Nevada. 

"Everything takes time. Eventually, we're gonna apply for the license, and hopefully we can fight," Mayweather said. 

No word on when exactly Floyd's applying -- or beginning his MMA training with UFC champ Tyron Woodley -- but TBE did give us an estimate on how long he'll need to get Octagon ready. 

"Even if it takes 6 to 8 months -- whatever it takes. We want to make sure that everything is done correctly."

I feel compelled to burst people’s bubble after seeing all the posts claiming CM Punk came out as a winner after UFC 225.

Let’s face the truth, Punk lost his match. He was able to last three rounds without getting knocked out, but he didn’t look stellar or much improved after his first bout. Quite honestly his performance was only good because he’s still unknown in the octagon. The crowd’s buzz kept it alive. I’ll admit I had high hopes for Punk when the fight began, but after he got busted open he was fading quickly. Lasting until the end showed that he wasn’t going to go down easy. He is gritty and determined, going after this despite what his critics have to say. But when you are in the public eye, you have to accept you will ALWAYS have critics. His fans need to understand this as well. Keep sticking up for Punk, and there will be someone out there to oppose you.

Dominic DeAngelo wrote an article on this subject here on WZ and made a bold statement saying, “Punk won. UFC lost. And so did Corey Graves.”

No, Punk lost. UFC doesn’t win or lose, the fighters do that, and UFC provides the stage for them to do so. Corey Graves didn’t win or lose anything besides extra traffic on his twitter account.

Justifying Punk won by saying he went after his dream despite his critics isn’t winning, that’s just Punk being Punk. People do it all the time. By that means, Curt Hawkins is winning because he’s in WWE despite his horrendous losing streak. I admire Punk going through with his second fight after coming off a hard loss on his UFC debut. I admire that he was able to go three rounds without getting knocked out. And I admire him still standing with his head held high after the announcer declared Mike Jackson the winner. Crossing over from WWE into any other role is tough to do because being involved in professional wrestling carries a certain stigma about it which has people thinking that particular individual relies on booking to give them their success.

That said, UFC isn’t the same as WWE. Wins and losses in WWE aren’t the only determining factors in a character’s success, although they play a big role. Wins and losses are everything in UFC. You only get to the title bouts in UFC by winning over and over. It’s the same with other sports, too. This isn’t a judgement, just a fact.

Corey Graves involving himself on Twitter had a lot of people talking. I can’t say with absolute certainty that this was all that was intended, but I suspect it was. Nowhere in the near future should we expect Punk vs Graves. Punk has said over and over that he is done with wrestling. Corey Graves retired from wrestling due to concussion issues, so I doubt he will want to step into the octagon and risk more severe consequences. If Graves isn’t reprimanded by WWE, then no harm no foul. We’ll have to keep an eye on the situation.

Lastly, UFC doesn’t win or lose. It’s not like UFC suddenly lost millions because of Punk’s fight. This statement has me scratching my head because I don’t understand it. UFC provides the stage and the scene for the fighters, they are the ones who win or lose. UFC hosting a CM Punk fight in Chicago is big money whatever the result ended up being. They drew money.

All this aside, it’ll be interesting to see what happens next with CM Punk. If he chooses to go it again in the octagon, it’s his business. No amount of editorials or tweets will change his mind. Just like no amount of editorials (mine included) will change the fact that Punk is now 0-2 in his MMA career."- Ivan Barrera

 Brock Lesnar is confirmed to be returning to the UFC for a fight with Daniel Cormier, though it cannot happen until at least January. Dana White spoke during the post-UFC 226 press conference about Lesnar’s appearance at cageside and confrontation with the new UFC heavyweight champion, saying ( per MMAjunkie), “We’re definitely going to make that fight.”

White noted thazt Lesnar has entered the USADA testing pool, as first reported last night, saying, “I don’t know where they are in the process, but he’s going to pop up (on USADA’s list) here soon.”

However, the part of the report that said Lesnar would fight Cormier at the November 3rd show in Madison Square Garden did prove inaccurate. To make his returnb, Lesnar must finish out the final six months of his suspension. As Lesnar only re-entered the testing pool last week (thus reactivating his MMA career), Lesnar will be unable to fight until January of 2019 at the earliest. 

Lesnar’s UFC return has been the subject of much speculation since April, when White saidjust before WrestleMania 34, “Yeah, Brock Lesnar’s coming back. I don’t know when, but yes he is.” The contract that he signed with WWE after WrestleMania is a multi-year deal that allows him to fight in the UFC.

– WWE has posted their first public comment on Brock Lesnar’s appearance at UFC 226 and upcoming fight with Daniel Cormier. The company  has posted an article on WWE.com thatr recaps the Lesnar situation, including his confrontation with Cormier and Dana White’s confirmation that the fight will happen down the line.

The full article reads as follows:

We don’t know who the next challenger for Brock Lesnar’s Universal Championship will be, but we do know his upcoming opponent — UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier.

Cameras caught Lesnar cageside for the main event of UFC 226 between UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic and challenger Daniel Cormier.

After Cormier knocked Miocic out in the first round to become both the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion and UFC Heavyweight Champion, he called out Lesnar and invited him into the octagon. Brock immediately shoved the new champ across the cage before delivering a profanity-laden tirade on the microphone.

Later in the night, during the post-show press conference, UFC President Dana White confirmed that Cormier vs. Lesnar would be happening in the future. He added that no date had been set.

Speculation has run rampant over Lesnar’s future for much of this year, starting with Lesnar posing for photos next to White on the night of WWE Elimination Chamber 2018. Lesnar last competed in UFC in July 2016.

Weeks ago, Lesnar’s advocate Paul Heyman revealed that The Beast’s next Universal Title defense was facing contractual issues due to a lack of confidence in WWE to find a suitable challenger. Lesnar last appeared on WWE TV at the Greatest Royal Rumble on April 27, where he retained the Universal Championship against Roman Reigns.

Stay tuned to WWE.com for any updates on Lesnar’s WWE contract.

It seems like this topic is pretty dead atm so time to bring it back.

The possibility of a Cormier vs Lesnar fight is still looming, especially after Lesnar dropped the Universal title at WrestleMania.

Middleweight rising star Israel Adesanya is going to soon be fighting Robert Whittaker for the undisputed UFC Middleweight Championship. Adesanya's fight with Gastelum at UFC 236 was amazing btw, check it out.

After beating Max Holloway to become the interim UFC Lightweight Champion, Dustin Poirier is going to be facing Khabib Nurmagomedov for the undisputed strap, which will be Khabib's first fight since the famous McGregor fight.

UFC Fight Night 150 took place last night, featuring the main event, a middleweight bout between Ronaldo "Jacaré" Souza taking on Jack Hermansson. Jack Hermansson got the unanimous decision win over Jacaré. This win is a big one for Hermansson and I could see him being a pretty successful fighter in the middleweight division.

UFC 237 was a bad night to be an MMA veteran. Anderson Silva, José Aldo, Minotouro and BJ Penn all lost, with Anderson Silva's loss to Jared Cannonier leaving the Brazilian crowd extremely pissed off. Fortunately for them, Jessica Andrade beat Rose Namajunas for the Strawweight title with a brutal slam right on Rose's neck.

Dana White has further commented to TMZ Sports on former UFC and current WWE superstar Brock Lesnar's status with UFC. White solidified that Lesnar is finished with UFC at this point.

"He's done," White stated. "He's made his decision. I don't know where he is in that other world. I know he was looking at doing a new deal with Vince [McMahon] to stay with WWE. I've always had a good relationship with Brock. We've always dealt really well with each other."

White also mentioned that in order to fight in UFC you have to be fully invested in fighting. Questioning Lesnar's mental dedication to UFC, White agreed Lesnar made the right call by choosing not to fight again.

"When you decide or don't decide to fight, it's a decision you have to mentally be ready to fight," White said. "You have to be all in on fighting. If you're not all in, then you shouldn't fight. He made a decision and it's the right decision."

Though Lesnar now appears to have completed his UFC run for now, there has been speculation as to why Lesnar left UFC in the first place. It has been argued that UFC's pay-per-view deal with ESPN combined with an alleged declining pay-per-view industry played into Lesnar's decision, which was rebuked by White.

"That's absolutely false," White claimed in a previous interview with ESPN. "And if you really look when we were on pay-per-view, we were on traditional pay-per-view, everybody was talking about how the pay-per-view business was dying. It's dying and nobody can pull numbers anymore ... We were still pulling five to seven million pay-per-view buys a year when we were on the dying, traditional pay-per-view."

It was also entertained that Vince McMahon simply offered Lesnar a more financially beneficial deal to remain in WWE.

"Brock Lesnar got a better deal is basically what happened for Brock" White said of a sought after Lesnar.
