There was a lot of hype leading up to CM Punk’s UFC debut against Mickey Gall back in 2016, but in the end Punk was defeated by Gall in short time.
Punk got a shot at redemption this year when he faced off against Mike Jackson at UFC 225, but he lost that fight as well and Dana White has said that he won’t be giving Punk the chance to step into the octagon again.
CM Punk recently spoke with 411 Mania, and he noted that even though he’s focused on other projects at the moment, he plans to get right back in the gym and continue his MMA training as soon as he finishes filming the movie he’s working on.
“Yeah, of course. From January until my fight, I was inundated with offers to do all kinds of other stuff, but focus had to be on the fight and the camp and all that stuff. So, what I’m doing now since my fight is I’m finishing all these other projects that I’ve been doing. Today’s my first day off from a four-week movie shoot. It’s week three, and this is like the first day that I’m off. Prior to that, I was up in Toronto working on a Soska Sisters remake of the legendary [David] Cronenberg film, Rabid. It’s a film I’m working on now. They’re kind of futzing with the title, but I think they’ve settled on Girl on the Third Floor. And there’s a whole bunch of other stuff in the queue I’m kinda just working on and working my way through. As soon as I wrap here, I’ll be right back in the gym.”
When asked if he’s going to attempt to fight again, the former WWE Champion said that at this point he doesn’t know.
“I don’t know. I’m focused on this movie right now. You’ll have to ask me when we wrap, which is in a couple weeks.”
