“Power Ranger” Jason Frank Signed To The UFC & Wants CM Punk As His First Fight

Less than 24 hours after the UFC announced the signing of former WWE champion Phil ‘CM Punk’ Brooks fighters to started competing for his first fight inside the Octagon.

UFC president Dana White said on Saturday that Brooks’ first fight will likely be against someone with equal footing in the fight game, most likely a fighter with one or two professional fights on their record.

Franks manager had this to say on the new deal:

“Jason’s actually been kind of toying with the idea of fighting CM Punk for over a year now, They toured together on the Wizard World conventions and they were doing appearances together and the fans were kind of talking about it and it got some buzz about a year ago. It never really died down, but with the announcement last night it flared back up. I got a text message from Jason right away saying ‘he wants to fight at middleweight, too, I’d love to do it, he got away from me’ just kind of joking around. But actually it makes a lot of sense. I have to do this and wake up the UFC, like CM, this is just a professional call out again. This is my life and I deserve a shot at this. Haters hate, winners win. It’s a great fight, embrace, don’t hate. Sure, why not, It doesn’t make sense to anybody that CM Punk is in the UFC now to start with, but that bridge is already built. He’s there. So with that said, who better of an opponent for your very first fight than Jason Frank? He has credibility because he has four MMA fights under his belt with four finishes. They would both be making their pro debut. Jason brings a cult like fan base following. I don’t think there’s anyone on the UFC roster that could fight Phil in his first fight and have it looked at as remotely fair. I’m not doubting Phil. I kind of applaud him for putting himself out there like that. It’s a gutsy move. I think this would be a great fight for his first fight and see where it goes from there.”
