Former WWE star CM Punk was recently interviewed by 411 Mania to talk about various topics. First, Punk was asked about the state of his mixed martial arts (MMA) career. In June, Punk suffered the second consecutive loss of his fighting career.
It’s likely that he’ll be cut from the UFC roster. Despite his defeat, Punk says that he’s still training in MMA:
“Yeah, of course. From January until my fight, I was inundated with offers to do all kinds of other stuff, but the focus had to be on the fight and the camp and all that stuff. So, what I’m doing now since my fight is I’m finishing all these other projects that I’ve been doing.
“Today’s my first day off from a four-week movie shoot. It’s week three, and this is like the first day that I’m off. Prior to that, I was up in Toronto working on a Soska Sisters remake of the legendary [David] Cronenberg film, Rabid.
“It’s a film I’m working on now. They’re kind of futzing with the title, but I think they’ve settled on Girl on the Third Floor.
“And there’s a whole bunch of other stuff in the queue I’m kinda just working on and working my way through. As soon as I wrap here, I’ll be right back in the gym.”
Punk doesn’t know if he’ll fight in MMA again. He’s focused on finishing up filming a movie right now. After that, he’ll reassess his fighting career:
“I don’t know. I’m focused on this movie right now. You’ll have to ask me when we wrap, which is in a couple weeks.”
