UFC Fighter Talks About CM Punk & Vince McMahon



UFC fighter Chael Sonnen, who has a big fight this Saturday night against Michael Bisping at UFC On FOX 2, claims that Vince McMahon ‘had his reasons’ for not allowing CM Punk to accompany him to the octagon for his fight.

The event takes place the night before the Royal Rumble from Punk’s home town of Chicago. Punk was originally going to be in Sonnen’s corner for the fight, but WWE CEO Vince McMahon vetoed Punk from appearing and told him that appearing at the UFC show was prohibited.

Sonnen told MMAFighting.com’s Ariel Helwani that he will meet up with Punk after the fight for dinner.

Sonnen said he is disappointed about the situation, but said he understands Vince’s decision.

Sonnen also shot down rumors that he will use CM Punk’s theme song “Cult of Personality” when he walks to the octagon.
