And Saunders responds...
CM Punk was a fan of Ben Saunders' submission win at UFC Fight Night 49. Saunders submitted Chris Heatherly with the first omoplata finish in UFC history and received an accolade from the former WWE star, who posted to Twitter:
Saunders also discussed the shout-out with MMAjunkie, saying, "That was one of the coolest things in the world – him hitting me up for that. I'm a big fan of his, and it was an absolute honor to get attention from him."
He added about his own post-match reaction, "I did not expect it to be this long before I actually got a fight, and I definitely didn't expect there to be so many obstacles in the way. But I definitely agree that everything happens for a reason."
