CM Punk Finally Responds To Logan Paul's Call Out For MMA Fight
CM Punk says he has no interest in fighting Logan Paul after the YouTube star called for an MMA fight.
Paul called out Punk - real name Phil Brooks - to an MMA bout following his defeat to KSI in a highly-publicised boxing clash in November 2019.
He claimed he would "destroy" Punk as he sets his sights on an opponent for a potential MMA showdown.
"I am (open to fighting CM Punk). I think I would destroy CM Punk if I'm being honest," he explained. "I don't know if anyone would disagree with that. He lost all (his UFC fights). I know I can take him."
Punk is 0-2 in the UFC. He lost his MMA debut to Mickey Gall before suffering another defeat to Mike Jackson and he has no intentions of facing Paul inside the cage.
"No," he told TMZ Sports when asked about a possible MMA fight against Paul. "My definition of big money and everybody else's definition of big money is completely different."

Punk last fought at UFC 225 when he got beat by Jackson on points.
Paul, meanwhile, remains interested in competing in MMA after making his professional boxing debut last year.
He has no MMA experience, but the 24-year-old has a wrestling background from his younger days.
Speaking about a potential transition to MMA ahead of his KSI rematch, he said: "Yeah, I'll fight Conor. He's f**king punching old men in the face.
"He did take it [the punch] though! He took the punch and then just drank his whiskey. Those Irishmen dude, those Irishmen. Wild.
"No offence to Eddie [Hearn], I'm an MMA fan. I want to do MMA after this. I wrestled in high school."
