During the UFC 225 post-fight press conference, Dana White was asked about CM Punk and his future with the MMA Promotion:
“It should be a wrap; The guy is 39 years old. We gave him two shots and he had a lot of heart tonight, but I think he should call it a wrap.”
All indications are that this show drew a good buyrate and Punk would get some of the credit for that. The gate was $2.55 million and the arena was sold out with additional standing room tickets made available during the final days ahead of the show. Punk will also be paid VERY handsomely (some reports suggest as much as 500 thousand dollars) for one nights work so I wouldn’t feel too sorry for him!
Sir Mitch Says: CM Punk may try to get signed by the Belator MMA promotion, but I think it’s more likely he’s now done with MMA.
