Fans of Phillip Brooks, better known by the ring name CM Punk, will hope that he can bring the same kind of hostility to his first UFC fight as he did in a recent interview with Kevin Wong of Complex Magazine.
When asked about what he is currently working on at training, Punk responded angrily.
"It’s a boring answer, because it’s kind of a boring question. This is mixed martial arts. I'm not in there one day, working on one specific thing, I'm in there everyday, working on everything," the former WWE star barked.
The following question was over whether he is nervous about being on the receiving end of proper punches rather than the contrived blows that litter WWE.
"I get this question a lot, and it’s like you guys think I'm an idiot. Like I didn't know MMA wasn't pre-determined or something like that," continued Brooks.
"I'm not on the defensive. Your question is insulting. You're asking me if I know the difference between the WWE and the UFC?
"That’s exactly what you're asking. You say my fans say that? You're mistaken. My fans do not say that. I wouldn't say anything to them [my critics]. I don't justify stupidity with an answer. I don't give a s**t what anybody thinks of me, whether I'm going to fight or not. I know what I'm going to do.
"If I did anything in my life based on someone’s negative opinion on me, I would never f*****g leave my house. My fans are people who don't tweet negative s**t at me."
Wong was informed after the interview that Punk never wanted to speak to him again.
