CM Punk’s venture in mixed martial arts (MMA) has been unsuccessful thus far. He made his debut back in 2016 and was quickly submitted in the first round. Two years later, Punk returned and went the distance with former Golden Gloves Houston winner Mike Jackson. However, he lost a lopsided decision when it was all said and done, and it’s believed Jackson allowed the fight to go on by choice.
Now, many believe Punk should accept a fight against the likes of YouTube star Logan Paul, who is coming off an amateur boxing fight against fellow YouTube star, KSI. Speaking to MMA Fighting recently, Punk said he has no interest in fighting Paul:
“I’m not fighting Logan Paul,” Punk said. “I think this is one of the avenues where people will be like, ‘I don’t even know who Logan Paul is.’ Logan Paul is apparently a popular guy, but it’s not in any kind of avenue that I drive my car on.
“The only thing I know about him is he’s the guy who filmed the dead body in the Japanese suicide forest, which is don’t get me started on that, because I’ll say a bunch of stuff and then I’m sure somebody will make a YouTube video about it.
“And I’m not into sharing that much of my time and my headspace and my life with somebody that did something that I feel is so reprehensibly disrespectful to the people of Japan, who I love. They’ll always have a special place in my heart. So, no. I’m not fighting him. I have no interest to.”
