UFC president Dana White is hunting for C.M. Punk’s first UFC opponent. He’s even filming a reality show about finding someone for Punk to fight.
“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 C.M. Punk right now,” White said on TSN this week, as quoted by Fox Sports.
White also hopes to find other fighters for his roster on the show. However, Punk remains a priority for White, who guaranteed that Punk will have a UFC fight in 2016.
“It’s the first time this guy has ever trained to fight,” White said. “The guy’s never wrestled. He’s professional wrestled, but he’s never wrestled. He will fight next year, 100 percent.”
Punk is recovering from injuries suffered during the first year of his formal UFC training with Roufusport in Milwaukee.
