As a training partner of CM Punk, Askren only has good things to say. It sounds like early reports on CM Punk's training at Roufusport are very postitive. At least, if Ben Askren is to be believed. Askren spoke to MMAJunkie about what he's seen so far, training with the former pro-wrestler, saying that "[CM Punk] comes in, works hard every single day."
