The American Kickboxing Academy is home to UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, top contenders such as Daniel Cormier, Luke Rockhold and several others.
It might also be the new training grounds for CM Punk.
Punk, who’s real name is Phil Brooks, recently signed with the UFC after a standout career in pro wrestling with the WWE. While he has worked with many of the Gracie brothers in the past, Brooks does not have a gym to prepare himself at yet.
Enter Cormier and AKA, says the No. 1 UFC light heavyweight contender.

That’s not the only gym offering up a welcome to Brooks, as new UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler did the same for American Top Team. Both ATT members Tyron Woodley and Thiago Alves echoed Lawler’s comments.
