But the fight of his career?
He made his fighting debut on the biggest stage in the sport, the UFC, but it was disastrous. I'm undefeated in boxing and kick boxing, with all of my wins coming by knockout. I do think it was intentionally done to bleed me of money. Different people get cut for different reason.
"I feel like I'm out and the future has yet to be written".
He felt heavier adversity this week in a Chicago courtroom.
Punk is slated to fight Mike Jackson in a welterweight bout at the upcomingUFC 225 pay-per-view event. Punk was cleared of defamation and invasion of privacy.
"It's a scheduling thing, and it's an anxiety thing", Punk explained (transcribed by MMAMania).
In the past four plus years there has been a lot of bad blood boiling over between CM Punk and WWE. Punk was on his back less than 10 seconds into the fight.
Later the featherweight veteran teamed-up with Punk and the duo gave their best rendition of the 7th inning stretch classic, "Take Me Out to the Ball Game".
"He looks at me and goes, 'It sucks doesn't it? I'm ready to put on a show and show the UFC fans what I was unable to in my first fight". "I don't know. I don't". It's just like, alright, I tried something out and I didn't succeed.
When asked why he would not accept, Punk took some shots at the President. It doesn't matter what I say, I've said no and no, no, no, so many times that people just always kind of are like, 'Oh, so there's a chance?' "I really needed to focus on me". "That was neither a threat or anything".
"The path that he took to get here, that's the only logical explanation I can come up with. Whatever your decision is, it's cool with me". "We match up closer in age, closer in skill". Now he's on the main card in his home city.
"The intensity level was definitely dialed up", Punk said. I don't care."I think people's perception of me is that I have a huge (ego)". Not that he didn't the first time around.
Rumours about Punk returning to the ring have been swirling as he agreed to do meet-and-great on the weekend of independent show All In.
Five WrestleManias have come and gone since Punk's exit. "Off the top of my head, I want to say yes, but the "I don't know" and the mystery behind it is more from a place that Sunday the sun does not come up in my mind right now". I didn't know what to do. Why didn't you do something?
"I don't think so but it's a hard question to answer".
The star quit WWE after enjoying the longest world championship reign of the modern era - with 434 days. I'm sick of crying about it. "I wasn't finding it", he said.
I said a bunch of stuff about wrestling, about how I'd never gotten a true offer [to return to wrestling]. You called me a superstar, and I don't view myself through that lens at all. I'm not the one to generally ask for help.
With almost 60 friends and family members in the stands Guida had a whole lot of people to impress, but "The Carpenter" didn't crack under the pressure. "But it didn't. I was just one of the cattle".
