‘I’m Not Fighting Logan Paul’

Now, Punk sat down with MMAFighting’s Marc Raimondi and told him straight up — ain’t happening.
“I’m not fighting Logan Paul.”
Then came the shade …
“I think this is one of the avenues where people will be like, ‘I don’t even know who Logan Paul is.’ Logan Paul is apparently a popular guy, but it’s not in any kind of avenue that I drive my car on. The only thing I know about him is he’s the guy who filmed the dead body in the Japanese suicide forest, which is don’t get me started on that, because I’ll say a bunch of stuff and then I’m sure somebody will make a YouTube video about it.”
There’s more …
“When you fight somebody, when you enter into a fight camp, you have to spend a lot of time thinking about that person … And, I’m not into sharing that much of my time and my headspace and my life with somebody that did something that I feel is so reprehensibly disrespectful to the people of Japan, who I love.”
“They’ll always have a special place in my heart. So, no. I’m not fighting him. I have no interest to.”
Punk says he’s still technically on the UFC roster and is tested by USADA in case he’s called on for another fight … but says he’d also be at peace if Dana White cut him.
