Punishment Martinez Spoke To Small MMA Promotions About Fighting

Punishment Martinez has tested the MMA waters. 

Last month in Texas, Punishment Martinez became Ring of Honor World Television Champion by defeating Silas Young and Martinez defended that Championship at ROH Best in the World on Saturday. In an interview with Hollywood Life, he was asked about his training regimen and Martinez said he's in the gym seven days a week and has been doing mixed-martial-arts training. The professional wrestler said he flirted with the idea of a MMA bout.

"I have recently stuck my feet back into martial arts and fighting so there is always a possibility of that. I have brought it up to promoters in smaller MMA productions so that is a possibility as well. But, right now, it is all about Ring of Honor," said Martinez 

Martinez went on to say he has a lot of big things coming up with Ring of Honor and his professional wrestling career. In the interview, he also spoke about Ring of Honor's recent growth and the changes to his in-ring character over the last year.
