Anthony Pettis says former WWE star CM Punk is still training at Roufusport.

Pettis Gives Update On Punk’s Time At Roufusport
“Showtime,” who is coming off a second-round knockout win over Stephen Thompson, spoke to TMZ Sports and gave the following update on Punk (via BJPenn.com):
“CM Punk is still there [at Roufusport]. He’s doing more of the jiu jitsu, the rolling. The time that he should have spent getting ready to fight is what he’s doing now. They put a lot of pressure on him. They made him come over with no experience and fight on the biggest stage. I don’t know anybody that could do that. Not even some young kids. He is still training. I don’t know what his plan is. I know he’s doing some movies and a couple other things, but I don’t know if he plans on fighting again or what. He’s still training. He’s in the gym. That dude’s a hard worker.”
Punk recently served as a color commentator for a CFFC event. That card aired live on UFC Fight Pass. Stick with MMA News for the latest updates on Punk’s fighting future.
