Jim Ross posted his latest blog at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are a few highlights:
UFC signing CM Punk:
"UFC scored a walk off grand slam with @DanaWhite's signing of former WWE superstar @CMPunk. The signing itself was a major news maker plus the ability to document Punk's training for his first fight which is still TBA should make for great TV on Fox. Punk has long been an aficionado and student of MMA having trained in Muay Thai and Gracie Ju Jitsu. The 36 year old will likely become obsessed in his training and is used to being considered an under achiever which will serve as a motivator for the former WWE World Champion as many MMA diehards who want to see Punk get beaten to a pulp and every wrestling fan who wants to see the Chicago born fighter succeed."
How Punk signing with UFC affects Brock Lesnar:
"Punk, unlike Brock Lesnar, isn't a former NCAA All American or a D1 National Champion but his heart and passion may tell another story. If UFC plays there cards strategically, Punk's PPV debut will add greatly to any under card that is booked. The curiosity factor to invest in Punk's first PPV will be big time. Speaking of Lesnar, Punk signing with UFC adds another wrinkle to the potential negotiations with Lesnar and UFC and/or Bellator. Interesting days lie ahead as it relates to contract negotiations. Punk signing with UFC helps Lesnar's leverage without question."
