So as a fan of MMA Im a little hesitant about the thought of CM Punk in the UFC but as a woman w/a slight crush on him Im excited as hell.

I bought WWE PPVs to watch @CMPunk, so I'll be doing the same for UFC in 2015 and beyond.

I am ridiculously excited to watch @CMPunk fight again. For real. The only downside is that I now have to learn a bunch of new terminology.
