CM Punk will train at Roufusport MMA Academy
CM Punk training at Roufusport does make sense as the gym, based in Milwaukee, is only a 90 minute drive from his home in Chicago.
Roufusport is led under legendary kickboxer Duke Roufus. The camp is renowned for innovation in striking and wrestling. Roufusport is home to UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, as well as other notable fighters, such as Olympic wrestler Ben Askren, Sergio Pettis, and Erik Koch.
Recently, Roufusport was in the news when former team members Rose Namajunas, Pat Barry and also coach Eric Shafer accused the team of over training their athletes and also using bullying tactics. Leader and Head coach Duke Roufus was singled out as being verbally abusive to fighters. The camp addressed all claims by stating their methods have improved.
