“The matchup would matter a great deal. We are not going to put someone with no fight experience in the cage against a specialized MMA fighter … if he’s had no prior fights, that’s obviously something that would concern us.”

“Money-making potential is not something that goes into our decision making process. We have the health and safety of the fighters in mind.”

Nevada State Athletic Commission Director, Bob Bennett Tells Eliaz Cepeda of FOX Sports just how important CM Punk’s first opponent will be in the UFC’s request to get their fighter licensed.
