It was just recently announced that, one of my favorites, CM Punk has registered and been cleared to being a MMA career. Yup going from acting to bludgeoning.

Punk had an awesome career as a WWE main event-er till the Authority plot line just pushed a little to far for his liking it seemed. Which I don’t blame him, he was pretty much the whipping boy nearly every week getting the bad side of many matches without much in the way of plot line advancement. He has been very vocal that he will not return to the WWE even with so much speculation from fans of what PPV he would make his triumphant return, especially after the Authority was ousted.

During Punks hiatus he helped write, or at least develop the latest Marvel Thor comic releases where it follows Thor’s rise through the teen years. From all outward appearances he will continue to help out with that series if not others down the road.

Now Punk though will test the octagon, he has some experience with Kenpo and Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu in his past training and even got an invite from Chael Sonnen once to be part of his entourage. He however has never actually competed in a MMA style fight that has been at least recorded, so it is really up in the air how he will do.

Here is what you can be assured of though, CM Punk has a HUGE following from WWE, he is incredibly popular and even barely casual fans knew who he was. UFC made a HUGE boost in ratings, followings, interest by signing him. There is no way they are going to let him show up and get his ass kicked, they will training the hell out of him long before they announce a fight and they will pick the first several opponents carefully. I’m not saying they will stage or fix anything but they will not jeopardize a draw that CM Punk will bring (especially since Lesnar also a crossover is one of their largest draws ever for a UFC event) They will do this right and when its right Punk will rock the scene like he always does.

I’m not really worried about how he will do honestly, he is very smart, very talented, and very very famous. He will do just fine and I for one will be interested in watching when it all goes down.
