It looks like we may have to wait a little longer to see CM Punk‘s debut in the UFC. Ever since we learned of him joining the UFC last year, the biggest question is when he would actually fight. The debate of Punk’s debut has been thrown around like Star Wars rumor, everyone has insight and nothing can be confirmed.
CM Punk’s head coach Duke Roufus told ESPN that Punk had tweaked his should during training and is set to see a physician on October 14.
He got caught in a scramble, so right now he’s taking a little time off…He was doing great before that. His progress has been good. He’s got a great attitude and he’s a hard worker. He got a place in Milwaukee where he lives all week when he’s here training, so he’s in it to win it
Our biggest thing is we want him to 101 percent before [we resuming training]. We don’t have a hard date for his fight to force the issue, so making sure he’s completely healthy is possible
He’s about at 50 percent…But that being said, remember that my 100 percent is a very well-prepared person
The UFC will probably book him a fight three to four months in advance — a guy of his magnitude. We’re probably looking at a fight in the next six to 10 months. The injury throws us back one month. We had a ballpark. We were looking at mid- to late-spring. Now, we’ll just have to see how he comes back from the injury
