As you might have expected, there was plenty of discussion on Twitter following the announcement Saturday night that the UFC had signed former WWE champion CM Punk.
Punk, real name Phil Brooks, is expected to compete in 2015 inside the Octagon. He trains with the Gracie brothers in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, but has no experience in an actual MMA match.

@ufc sign a fake wrestler, but not an Olympian who is the best WW in the world. Amateur move.

Look I got nothing against the guy, but it took me 8 years to get here, Maybe the dude should have 1 fight first at least.
