As noted, Dana White spoke with TSN during Saturday’s UFC Media Day in Boston and seemed to indicate interest in having both CM Punk and Brock Lesnar compete inside the Octagon.
When given odds by the interviewer, White claimed that he would bet “Yes” on both competing at some point in 2018.
In another interview with Dan Gelston of The Associated Press, White elaborated, essentially confirming that Punk will compete inside the Octagon again.
“I like that guy,” White said of Punk. “He’s a good dude. He wants one more. He wants to get another shot. I’m going to give it to him.”
When asked where, when and against whom, White added, “I’m working on it.”
The UFC President also spoke further on Lesnar possibly entering the Octagon again.
“I think he’ll give it one more run,” White said. “I just think Brock loves to fight.”
