When CM Punk reflects on the surreal moment of fighting in the UFC, he feels a mix of satisfaction and bewilderment. The former WWE champion and pro wrestling star made his octagon debut with no MMA experience in 2016. Punk started training in early 2015 with Duke Roufus, who coached the likes of former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis and top welterweight contender Belal Muhammad. Although Punk’s short stint in the UFC didn’t go well – a quick submission loss to Mickey Gall followed by a lackluster unanimous decision loss to Mike Jackson that was later overturned when Jackson tested positive for marijuana – he’s happy to have taken the chance. “I asked my wife the other day, because I said something, I was just like, ‘Yeah, what was I, like, 35 when I fought?’ And she was just like, ‘Oh no, you were like 36 or 37,’” Punk said on “The MMA Hour.” “And I just went, ‘What the f*ck was I thinking?’ I’m glad I did it. Zero regrets
