During the press conference, which you can watch in the video player above, Punk talks about remaining “cool as a cucumber” prior to the bout, which will mark both his UFC and MMA debut. Punk also had the following to say on what fans can expect from the highly anticipated matchup:
“I’m coming in to win. I don’t care how it happens. There are a lot of victories already here, but the goal is obviously to get my hand raised. If you think anything but that, it doesn’t matter how hard you’ve trained because you’ve already lost.”
Punk added him and his team belong in UFC, and you can check out a photo gallery of Punk’s appearance below, along with photos of Punk’s open workout session held earlier this week:
