Ever since an interview last week with MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani, the MMA world has been a buzz in regards to Phillip Brooks’ (CM Punk) possible transition from pro-wrestling to MMA.
News then broke that ‘Punk’ had opted not to resign with his former employer the WWE. Which was then followed by some interesting statements made by Brooks’ BJJ coach, Rener Gracie, during an interview with FOX Sports.
Obviously, Bellator MMA executives have caught wind of the news, as Dave Meltzer recently reported that the Viacom owned fight organization has already expressed their desire to sign the former WWE Champion.
