After stepping into the UFC’s octagon for two fights that he found himself on the losing end of, the future of former WWE Champion CM Punk in the fight game has seemingly been left up in the air although he’s still under contract with the UFC.
While Punk hasn’t indicated if he would no longer pursue stepping into the cage himself, the next step in his MMA career has been announced as he has signed on with Cage Fury Fighting Championships as its newest commentator. Of course, WWE fans know that Punk has experience providing color commentary, filling the role for Monday Night RAW briefly in November 2009. He also is currently a host of the Netflix United States Ultimate Beastmaster series.
Punk’s first evening on the mic will come on December 14th at CFFC 71 in Atlantic City, which is the promotion’s first ever event to be streamed via UFC Fight Pass, issuing the following comments on his new venture:
“I can’t wait for this opportunity to call the CFFC fights on UFC Fight Pass,” Punk said. “CFFC has a long history of putting on exciting fights featuring some of the sport’s up-and-coming athletes. This card is going to be a lot of fun, and I’m really excited to have the chance to be a part of it.”

EA’s Take: Let’s be real here…Punk shouldn’t be getting back into that octagon. However, this is a spot in the MMA world where he can certainly shine. We all know he has the gift of gab and while maybe he lacks credibility given his professional fight record, he wouldn’t be the first commentator at sports to suck at the game/sport he speaks about. I would argue that his ability to speak is what really began to get him noticed initially by a wider base of fans during his WWE tenure. If you remember, he was always the great worker with an underground swell of fans, but everything really started to change for him after that short stint on commentary for RAW.
