Was CM Punk supposed to sign with the UFC?

Remember that big announcement teased by the UFC ahead of their ‘The Time Is Now’ presser?

CM Punk: Where do you stand?

Ah, CM Punk. In the ring, few could match him for his skill, innate charisma and penchant for creating memorable moment after memorable moment. Outside the ring, it seemed the Straight Edge Superstar was also in a league of his own when it came to the size of the chip on his shoulder.
