CM Punk began training with his new camp, Roufusport, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin today. Punk will be training with head coach Duke Roufus and wrestling coach Ben Askren.
Askren, who previously mocked UFC signing Punk on Twitter, talked to FOX Sports about being Punk's coach and said Punk won't get any special treatment. He said:
"Yeah, it's just a thing where he'll be another student, more than anything else. He'll show up to class, he'll warm up, he'll be a part of the team. [UFC lightweight champion] Anthony [Pettis] doesn't get treated special. I don't get treated special. I can't be sure, but I don't think [CM Punk] will get treated special."
