• UFC Legend Frank Mir On His Problem With CM Punk Fighting In UFC

During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, former UFC Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir explained why he had a problem with CM Punk fighting in UFC.

Below is what Mir said:

“I was upset when CM punk got to have a UFC fight for his debut. Well, if all of a sudden my first ever pro wrestling match I jumped into AEW or WWE, they’d say what an assh*le!

So just on my name I jump out there. I’m not gonna look very good, I’m not going to do a great job. And what does that say to all of the guys who have worked? Have wrestled for fifty f*cking bucks, you know? I mean like it’s kind of a spit in their face.

Now I was the one upset before when the guy came over my sport and just took another [fighter’s spot]…that was my problem.

I wasn’t mad at CM Punk for getting that opportunity. I was mad because it took the opportunity away from somebody else.”
