Chael Sonnen Teases That CM Punk Will Face A Known Fighter

After it was announced that he had signed with the UFC, MMA fans around began to wonder who CM Punk will go up against for his first go inside the Octagon. According to Punk’s friend, Chael Sonnen, the decision has likely already been made.

In speaking with sources, Sonnen had this to say:

“I have a pretty good idea who his opponent is, I’m going to keep that close to the vest. It would not make sense to give him a bottom-tier guy. Well, he is not a bottom-tier guy, I can tell you that. You will know who he is and he will be a pretty-heavy favorite to win. Punk is not going to come in as the favorite.”
