CM Punk on UFC 203 Bout: “I’m Confident in My Preparation”

September 8, 2016 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

CM Punk spoke during the pre-fight press conference for UFC 203. You can see a couple of highlights below:

On how he’s feeling: “I’m just trying to enjoy this week. I’m trying to do everything I can to remain healthy. Right now, I’m cool as a cucumber. I’ve stated before that I’m sure I’ll have pre-fight butterflies, but I’m actually looking forward to feeling that again. They’ve been gone for a long time, I’m glad they’re back.”

On what fans should expect: “Fans should expect a fight. This is MMA — it’s chaos. 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.”

On those who don’t believe he belongs on the card: “I belong here and my team belongs here. I’m confident in my preparation. To me, it’s never too late to start something. If you think otherwise, I’m sorry your dreams are so small.”
