CM Punk: Contrary to popular belief I have been punched in the face
Thursday December 18th, 2014

Former WWE wrestler and newly-signed UFC fighter CM Punk was on SI Now Thursday, where he helped straighten out a misconception.

Punk has, in fact, been punched in the face. He's been beaten up. He's not worried about being able to take a few hits when he makes his MMA debut.

Of course, as Punk points out, the goal is not to get punched in the face at all, but that seems pretty inevitable.
