Default Green Power Ranger offers to fight CM Punk in World Series of Fighting

From MMAFighting.com (By Ariel Helwani on Feb 5 2014, 1:03p):
If professional wrestler CM Punk really wants to try his hand at MMA, Jason David Frank, the former Green Ranger of "Power Rangers" fame, would like to welcome him to the cage.

According to World Series of Fighting executive vice president and matchmaker Ali Abdel-Aziz, Frank's manager Brian Butler, recently contacted the promotion about setting up a fight under the WSOF banner between his client and Punk, real name Phil Brooks. Butler confirmed making the call, and Frank recently threw out a challenge via Instagram.

Abdel-Aziz said the promotion was interested in the fight, and if Punk didn't want to fight that particular opponent for whatever reason, they would be interested in having him fight someone else. They have not talked to Punk just yet.

"If Brock Lesnar can do it, he can do it," Abdel-Aziz said.

MMAFighting.com attempted to reach out to Punk to get his thoughts on the fight, but he did not reply. We were, however, the last outlet to talk to him prior to his decision to leave WWE, and he confirmed that he does still think about fighting, an idea he has flirted with throughout the last couple years.

"I'm 35. I never competed in martial arts, so who's to say if I would be good or not," he said. "I really think there's a chance, but I'm mainly just saying so I can read people talk on message boards."

He then replied "I think so" when asked if he had an itch to fight. Punk currently trains Brazilian jiu-jitsu with Rener Gracie.

The 35-year-old former WWE heavyweight champion reportedly left the organization last week with five months remaining on his current contract. He has yet to publicly comment on the situation.

Frank is 1-0 as a pro MMA fighter and 3-0 as an amateur. The 40-year-old's last MMA fight came in Aug. 2010.
