Dana White scouting opponents for CM Punk’s first UFC fight


During an appearance on TSN’s Off The Record with Michael Landsberg, UFC President Dana White said that he is using his new show ‘Dana White: Looking for a fight’ to scout opponents for CM Punk.

Punk, who signed with the UFC last year, has been busy training but his rumored first fight before the end of 2015 did not happen and now the UFC is looking to 2016 to give Punk his debut. The former WWE champion is currently suffering from a shoulder injury which might push his debut even further back.

White said he never thought Punk would be ready to make his Octagon debut in 2015 but said he would be in the Octagon in 2016 “100 percent.”
