On January 28th, Chael Sonnen will be facing Mark Munoz to see who will be the No. 1 contender in the UFC Middleweight division. With his theatrical WWE personality, Sonnen has aptly decided to have current WWE Champion CM Punk accompany him for his entrance.
Many different sources have confirmed this, with some even stating that Vince McMahon personally gave Sonnen his approval.
This makes a lot of sense since both companies have crossover fans. UFC on Fox 2 is being held in CM Punk's hometown of Chicago, and both Punk and Sonnen are known for their personalities on the microphone.
This decision is not only great news for fans but also for the UFC and WWE as companies. It is showing teamwork between the companies while giving both more exposure.
CM Punk should add extra entertainment for fans, a huge pop for Chael Sonnen, and symbolizes a future partnership between UFC and the WWE.
