Phil Brooks is to do his UFC debut preps with Roufusport team led by famous coach Duke Roufus which also includes famous Pettis brothers and Ben Askren who was not that happy when Brooks signed with the UFC.

Phil 'CM Punk' Brooks now resides in Milwaukee where he is preparing for his UFC debut with Roufusport team. The former wrestler chose this team famous for its success stories as well as for versatile fighters who are not specialized in only one style.

Brooks’ colleagues new will be Pettis brothers, Dustin Ortiz, Erik Koch, Chico Camus, Rick Glenn and Ben Askren who was not all too happy when Brooks signed with the UFC and who also made a couple of insulting comments on this new UFC member.

Now he will be forced to train with him, but the team leader Duke Roufus claims it will be no problem.
"Ben’s stoked to work with Phil," he told MMA Fighting. "Something that’s really underrated with Ben — not unlike Daniel Cormier at AKA — he’s our fighter coach. Not only is Ben coaching well, one thing that I see him doing that I’m so happy with, he has a different perspective on helping the guys with their attitude,” said Roufus.

Anyhow, Brooks chose a team where he will work with the best wrestler and the best striker in the MMA world. Not a bad choice!
