According to several reports, WWE champion CM Punk will escort Chael Sonnen to the Octagon for his fight with Mark Munoz on January 28 from Punk’s hometown of Chicago, Illinois at UFC on FOX 2. The story was first reported by a member of The Underground forum.
Neither Punk or Sonnen would confirm the report, which also said Punk would just walk with Sonnen and not actually be in his corner come fight time. The winner of Sonnen-Munoz is expected to meet UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva for the title later in 2012.
Punk has let it be known he is a huge fan of MMA, and Sonnen the same in regards to professional wrestling. Back in 2009, former WWE superstar and MMA hopeful, Dave Batista, accompanied Manny Pacquaio to the squared circle for a boxing match with Ricky Hatton.
UFC on FOX 2 goes down a day before Royal Rumble, a major WWE pay-per-view event, where Punk is slated to defend his world title at.
