We’ve already seen how some of his training has been coming along, and it’s hard to really get a feel for how good he is at this point. Honestly, the footage isn’t very kind, but according to Punk he’s more than ready.
In fact, he says that he’s going to come away from the fight with the victory and might even throw in one of his WWE moves if the opportunity presents itself.
He also says his greatest strength in the Octagon is his “chin and his heart.” We’ll see if that’s enough to get him the W.
Punk also held a media day this week in which he talked about his expectations.
“People expect me to get knocked out. People expect me to get starched in, you know, 30 seconds,” said Punk. “And then there’s people out there that realize once I step into the Octagon I’ve already won.”
He may have a point there. I guess we’ll just have to wait until September 10th to find out.
