Well, according to longtime mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran and current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight Cole Miller, CM Punk is better than half the active fighters on the ZUFFA roster, and will prove a lot of haters wrong when he makes his Octagon debut in late 2015.

Not only does Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight Nate Diaz miss open workouts, he misses weight, too. The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 5 champion came in nearly five pounds over the 155-pound mark (160.6) and was given two hours to shed the excess weight. Diaz, however, opted to have 20-percent of his fight purse taken instead, which will now go to opponent Rafael dos Anjos, according to MMA Junkie.
