cm punk talking dead​Ronda Rousey, UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion, was asked about CM Punk and the professional wrestling world during a conversation with the press during the UFC 171 pay-per-view this weekend. 

On if she would ever consider a career in pro wrestling: 

"It's fun. We're all big fans, in the house. The 'Rowdy' in my name comes from 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper … Professionally? Who knows. Me and all the girls are huge fans. If they were all down to do something, I'd probably jump in, but I have the most hectic schedule in the universe right now." 

On hanging out with CM Punk: 

"I was totally a dark and star-struck too. At first I didn't recognize him. Then I didn't have anything to say. I think the first thing I had to say was 'I love you', which is terrible and not smooth at all. He was super cool. He came and hung out for a bit, which I thought was all kinds of awesome."
