On Tuesday afternoon UFC fighter Cathal Pendred took to Twitter to crack a few jokes over the latest footage of former WWE superstar turned UFC welterweight CM Punk’s training regiment.

CM Punk0 (0-0), who has been training under the tutelage of Duke Roufus and the rest of Roufussport team for the last few months, had previously announced he had signed with the UFC during the broadcast of UFC 181. With no professional experience CM Punk, real name Phil Brooks, drew the ire from more than a few fighters who felt he had simply used his fame to cut the line.

Needles to say, CM Punk did not take Pendred’s, nor anyone else’s, criticism lightly.



While the UFC has yet to reveal a date or opponent for Brooks’ debut, the report indicate he is targeting a date this December.
