For the past couple of weeks, the wrestling community has been buzzing about CM Punk, WWE’s mercurial star wrestler who, apparently, walked out on the company over creative differences just weeks before the biggest wrestling event of the year. It’s still not known whether Punk’s resignation is a work (wrestling slang for staged storyline) or shoot (real life).

What we do know is that the original Green Ranger on the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV show, Jason David Frank, has challenged Punk to a fight.

Not a Power Ranger fight, but a real fight, because Frank is now a professional MMA fighter. An undefeated one, as a matter of fact, with a 1-0 in professional record and 3-0 in amateur fights. (He's also something like 150-0 against Rita Repulsa and Lord Zed)

According to Frank’s official Instagram page:

So now that CM punk is out of his contracts and wants to do MMA. Why not me? He already said he fight me. I got this on video from a fan. Come on CM punk we could make this a awesome fight. Plus his weight is way down. This is a recent pic. I’ll make any weight to make this happen!! JDF @wizardworld
