Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

CM Punk’s Debut Opponent Will Be Discovered on a Web Series, Because Of Course He Will

With Ronda Rousey’s shocking loss still in the rearview mirror and the biggest featherweight fight of all time on the horizon, it seems that the MMA world has all but forgotten about CM Punk.

It has been almost a year to the date since Punk (aka Phil Brooks) was signed by the UFC¬†to fill the void left behind by Brock Lesnar, and all seemed to be going smoothly with his preparation until he pulled the most MMA thing of them all and got himself injured. But now, it looks like a definitive timetable has been set for Punk’s return, as well as the opponent he will be making his MMA debut against. Sort of.

In an interview with Off the Record (via BloodyElbow), White confirmed that Punk/Brooks (Bunk? Pooks?) “will fight next year, 100 percent,” which by the laws of the MMA Gods, can only mean that a horrific career-ending injury is headed his way…though I suppose you wouldn’t be able to call it “career-ending” given that, you know, Punk has never actually fought before. Regardless, let it be known that 2016 will officially go down in the history books as “The Year of the Bunk.”

As to Punk’s opponent, well, he will more than likely be found on “Looking for a Fight,” the web series White has been filming alongside Nick the Tooth and Matt Serra over the past few months.

“I just started a new show, the pilot is on YouTube, it’s called Dana White: Looking for a Fight, and I’m actually out looking for opponents for CM Punk right now,” said White.

If you recall, it was the first episode of the show (which we’ve embedded below) wherein Aryan youth, freak of nature, and 80′s movie bully Sage Northcutt was discovered after dispatching¬†Gage Duhon at Legacy Fighting Championship 42.

Personally, I’m just happy that the UFC isn’t basing a whole season of The Ultimate Fighter around Punk’s debut opponent and I just gave them the idea, didn’t I?
