CM Punk signed with the UFC over a year ago, and he has yet to make any type of noise in the fighting league. Whether that be with a scheduled fight or at the very least some kind of movement towards training to fight somebody, it appears that the whole thing might be losing its "cuteness" and could get less interesting for fans of the UFC and WWE.
Here's what Cormier had to say on UFC Tonight alongside Kenny Florian:
"As time is passing, it starts to lose some of the intrigue. I think the iron was hot when he first walked out on the WWE and that's when he would have made the biggest impression on the MMA community because WWE fans would have followed him to MMA."
Kenny Florian expressed his concerns as well, debating whether the WWE Champion was developing quickly enough.
"This is what really concerns me because they said he was going to fight in 2015. That he needs some time to train. Well, that hasn't happened. I know he has dealt with some other injuries and things like that. But the fact that they say that he's not ready concerns me. It shows that, listen, you don't just jump into this sport and say you're going to compete. It takes time and there's a process. There's a reason why they're telling him to take his time. I think his training isn't coming along as fast as they thought and it's unfortunate."
