Eight months after signing with UFC, CM Punk discusses journey toward MMA debut

CHICAGO -- In what has become an annual tradition for us prior to every UFC on FOX event in Chicago, we caught up with former WWE champion CM Punk at his home in "The Windy City." However, this time around, the circumstances were different because eight months ago CM Punk signed with the UFC.

In this sit-down interview, Punk reveals how the deal came about, how his training is going, what he envisions for his first two fights, when he wants to debut and much more.

(To watch our previous Punk interviews, here's 2012, 2013 and 2014, and here's the one right after the UFC announcement.)
