UFC fighter CM Punk was recently interviewed by the Toronto Sun to promote Saturday’s UFC 185 pay-per-view event. He was asked if he has been given any advice from current WWE Champion Brock Lesnar, which he responded:
"I've talked to him once, he lives in the middle of nowhere where there's no cell service, he's in the middle of like, Saskatchewan, I don't even know. I asked him what the hardest thing for him to do was, because obviously he's a freak athlete but something had to be difficult, and I find it's the exact same thing I'm having difficulty with, which is learning to let go. Striking or sparring is completely different, somebody's trying to punch me in the face and I'm trying to punch someone in the face, but often I'll find I'm too light on guys if I'm (working on his ground game. My hips aren't heavy enough. It's like the old pro-wrestling kicking in, and he had the same problem."
