fighter Chael Sonnen tells MMAWeekly.com that WWE
Champion CM Punk
was never confirmed to escort him to the octagon for the UFC
on FOX special later this month in 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.”
