Front Row Brian, who has broken numerous stories in the past, said that Punk will begin training on January 5th. Roufusport is based in Milwaukee, a 90-minute trek from Punk's home in Chicago.
Roufusport is home to UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, as well as other notable fighters Ben Askren, Sergio Pettis, and Erik Koch. The camp is renowned for it's innovative striking, but with the aforementioned Askren also has Olympic-level wrestling coaches.
Roufusport was in the news recently after former team members Rose Namajunas, Pat Barry and former coach Eric Shafer accused the team of utilizing overtraining and bullying tactics. Head coach Duke Roufus was singled out as verbally abusing his lesser-known fighters. The camp addressed those claims by saying their training methods have been improved in previous years.
