Plus Benson Henderson Discusses His Weight Class Transition and AXS TV FIGHTS Presents Highlights from ‘RESURRECTION FIGHTING ALLIANCE 23’
LOS ANGELES – February 6, 2015 – UFC fighter Tyron Woodley joined AXS TV’s INSIDE MMA tonight to give an update on the broken foot he sustained during his win at UFC 183 last weekend. To cap off the interview, series hosts Kenny Rice and Bas Rutten asked Woodley about his move to Roufusport Mixed Martial Arts Academy and his thoughts on UFC fighter and former WWE wrester Phil “CM Punk” Brooks after getting a chance to train with him.
“I did have a chance to train with CM Punk. CM Punk’s awesome… He’s a student of the sport. A lot of people are giving him a lot of crap. After hanging out with him for three weeks I told him ‘Anyone got a problem with CM Punk, you got a problem with me.’”
