CM Punk is heading to the broadcast booth for MMA. The former WWE Champion has proven his chops behind the mic for both WWE and Ultimate Beastmaster on Netflix and now these skills will be put to the test for MMA when he calls Caged Fury Fighting Championships’ debut on UFC Fight Pass, as the promotion told MMAJunkie.com:

“I can’t wait for this opportunity to call the CFFC fights on UFC Fight Pass,” Punk said in a statement. “CFFC has a long history of putting on exciting fights featuring some of the sport’s up-and-coming athletes. This card is going to be a lot of fun, and I’m really excited to have the chance to be a part of it.”

Punk joins veteran play-by-play broadcaster and New Jersey radio host Mike Gill, as well as longtime CFFC commentator Brian Palakow on the broadcast team.

“CM Punk’s knowledge and passion for MMA is incredible, and his charisma and personality make him a perfect fit for this role,” CFFC president Rob Haydak said in a statement. “By pairing him with Mike Gill, a true sports broadcasting veteran who has been around the fight game his whole career in Atlantic City, we have a great combination for our first show on UFC Fight Pass.”

Punk has gone 0-2 as a UFC Fighter, and this is another way for him to explore his MMA passion, and honestly, it plays more to his strength. Good news for Punk, bad news for those waiting for him to return to pro wrestling.
