CM PunkChael Sonnen Denies CM Punk Reports

UFC fighter Chael Sonnen tells that WWE Champion CM Punk was never confirmed to escort him to the octagon for the UFC on FOX. That fight takes place the night before WWE Royal Rumble and will be in CM Punk's hometown of Chicago. Despite Punk telling MMA Weekly last week that Vince McMahon had pulled him from the appearance, Sonnen said last night:

"I gotta tell you. I read those headlines. I never confirmed them. CM Punk never confirmed them. I'll speak for myself – I'm not in the business of stopping a headline, but I never confirmed that anybody would be joining me. I know he didn't confirm it."
