Roman Reigns talks CM Punk & Brock Lesnar’s MMA careers
When asked if he would watch CM Punk’s next UFC fight, Roman Reigns told Alex McCarthy of the Give Me Sport podcast this week that he will watch, but only “if it lasts more than 30 seconds” this time.
Reigns was more supportive of Universal Champion Brock Lesnar’s possible return to UFC. Reigns said he thinks Lesnar should make the move now if he does in fact want to step back in the octagon. “Now is the time to pull the trigger, he’s not getting any younger,” Reigns said. “I fully support whatever [Lesnar] wants to do.”
