Former WWE Superstar CM Punk Announced For Upcoming MMA Event: All You Need To Know

6 months ago By Jhon Woug

Former WWE Superstar CM Punk, known for his tenure in WWE and his subsequent stint with AEW, is making headlines once again. This time, it’s not within the wrestling ring but in the world of mixed martial arts (MMA). While CM Punk’s future in professional wrestling remains uncertain, he is gearing up to make a public appearance at an MMA event that has stirred considerable excitement among fans.

CM Punk, whose real name is Phil Brooks, is no stranger to the world of MMA. He ventured into the octagon twice during his MMA career with the UFC, but his time there was less than stellar. He faced defeats in both of his UFC bouts, the first against Mickey Gall at UFC 203 and the second against Mike Jackson at UFC 225. However, his loss to Jackson was later overturned to a no-contest due to Jackson’s positive marijuana test on fight night.

In recent times, CM Punk has been involved with the Cage Fury Fighting Championships (CFFC), not as a fighter but as a commentator. His passion for MMA and his ability to engage with the audience have made him a valuable addition to the CFFC team. This involvement in MMA extends beyond commentary, as he’s now set to make an appearance at a highly anticipated MMA event.

The event, titled “Anthony Pettis’ Fight Night,” is hosted by former UFC Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis. It is scheduled to take place on November 19th at the Baird Centre in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This event has generated significant buzz, as it promises an exciting night of fights and entertainment, featuring a star-studded lineup.

Among the notable figures set to make appearances at the event alongside CM Punk are UFC legend Nate Diaz, magician Criss Angel, Frank Mir, and Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson. With a combination of high-profile personalities and thrilling fights, “Anthony Pettis’ Fight Night” is poised to be an unforgettable evening for MMA enthusiasts.

CM Punk’s involvement in this event showcases his continued passion for MMA. Despite his setbacks in the UFC, he remains an ardent fan of the sport. His presence at the event not only adds to its appeal but also serves as a reminder of his journey in the world of mixed martial arts.

This announcement comes at a time when CM Punk’s future in the world of professional wrestling is uncertain. After his last pro wrestling match at the AEW All In London event at Wembley Stadium, CM Punk was embroiled in several controversies. One notable incident involved a backstage skirmish with “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry. Another incident with AEW owner, CEO, and GM Tony Khan led to Khan publicly expressing concerns for his safety due to CM Punk’s actions. Consequently, AEW decided to terminate CM Punk’s contract without cause.

The wrestling world has been abuzz with speculation regarding CM Punk’s next move. While some fans have expressed a desire to see him return to WWE, where he made a name for himself, recent reports suggest that WWE has turned down the opportunity, despite CM Punk being open to the idea.

One promotion that has emerged as a potential destination for CM Punk is Impact Wrestling, which is set to rebrand as TNA once again in January 2024. CM Punk’s recent visit to the promotion has fueled speculation about a possible partnership. Impact Wrestling also has the advantage of employing one of CM Punk’s best friends, Ace Steel, who works backstage in the promotion. While TNA may not be able to match the financial offers of AEW or WWE, it remains a viable option for CM Punk’s future in wrestling.

CM Punk’s appearance at “Anthony Pettis’ Fight Night” further highlights his multifaceted career. His transition from professional wrestling to MMA commentary and appearances underscores his dedication to his second passion, mixed martial arts. It’s a testament to his versatility and willingness to explore various avenues within the world of combat sports.

The timing of this MMA event aligns with WWE’s plans for Survivor Series, which is scheduled to take place on November 25th. Interestingly, the Survivor Series is set to be held in CM Punk’s hometown of Chicago. Despite his connection to the city and the wrestling world, CM Punk humorously acknowledged that he wouldn’t be present at the event, citing its sold-out status.

In conclusion, CM Punk’s upcoming appearance at “Anthony Pettis’ Fight Night” is an exciting development for fans of both MMA and professional wrestling. It signifies his enduring passion for MMA and his ability to remain relevant in the sports and entertainment industry. While his future in pro wrestling remains uncertain, his foray into the world of MMA events is a clear indicator that CM Punk is far from being forgotten and continues to captivate audiences with his diverse career choices. As the date of the event approaches, all eyes will be on Milwaukee, eagerly awaiting the presence of the former WWE Superstar at “Anthony Pettis’ Fight Night.”
