Chael Sonnen Responds To CM Punk-WWE
– UFC fighter Chael Sonnen tells MMAWeekly.com that WWE Champion CM Punk was never confirmed to escort him to the octagon for the UFC on FOX special later this month in Chicago.

CM Punk never confirmed them. I’ll speak for myself – I’m not in the business of stopping a headline, but I never confirmed that anybody would be joining me. I know he didn’t confirm it.”
