The Dr. Chris Amann vs. CM Punk and Colt Cabana trial kicked off last week, and Amann was seeking close to $4 million dollars worth of damages due to comments Punk made during an episode of Colt Cabana’s Art of Wrestling podcast.
However, the jury ruled in favor of Punk and Cabana, so luckily they didn’t have to pay the $4 million, but they did have to pay their lawyers.
Following the conclusion of the trial Punk spoke to MMAFighting.com, and he was asked if he’s going to sue Dr. Amann to recover the legal fees.
“I don’t think it’s my style,” Punk said via Wrestling Inc. “I don’t know know what I’m going to do. This whole experience has taught me a lot… I’m on the fence. Money is just paper, but that was my life’s work. I do think it was intentionally done to bleed me of money. It’s over, and there’s a big part of me like, it’s over. Just leave me alone. I don’t want anything to do with you. That’s how negative that situation is, and I don’t want anything to do with it. I just want to be over here and be happy [motions to his right], so I’ll probably just stay over here and be happy.”
Now that this situation has finally been resolved it seems that Punk is simply happy to move on to the next chapter of his life.
On Saturday night he will be stepping into the octagon for his second MMA fight when he faces Mike Jackson at UFC 225.
