Tuesday, during an interview with Rashad Evans, CM Punk’s name came up. Ellis took the opportunity to talk some smack, and issue a challenge.

“I would totally fight him. I’m better than him,” Ellis said. “Stand-up, I’ll f-cking destroy him. … I think I’m better on the ground. My wrestling’s better because I’m from Team Quest.

If I get back up, you’re going to sleep for sure.”

Ellis promised that he’d deliver a show for the fans, too.

“I hit real hard, too. I’ve got heavy hands. Everybody says that,” Ellis said. “And I can take a punch, which means we can have a show. … I’m for the fans.”

“I don’t think his face can take it,” Ellis continued, referring to the two fighters’ stand-up. “I know my face can take it.”
