David Cash, better known to wrestling fans as Kid Kash, will make his return to Mixed Martial Arts after an eight-year absence with a bout against Lindsey Jones at Valor Fights 38. The former WWE Cruiserweight Champion recently spoke to MMAFighting.com regarding his upcoming fight.
He also spoke about former WWE superstar, CM Punk’s UFC debut, last month at UFC 203, and had some scathing words for the Straight Edge Superstar.
Cash noted that the thought of knocking CM Punk out came to his mind, as he watched the fight against Mickey Gall UFC 203 and elaborated on why he was never a fan of the former WWE Champion:
"Damn, he's the same weight that I am," Cash exclaimed after he watched Punk’s debut UFC bout.
"How bad would I love to knock his ass out? I've never liked him. I've known the guy for at least 15 years, probably, and he's been such an arrogant asshole. He was handed so much sh*t. He never earned a f*cking thing."
Cash further blasted the Chicago native by claiming that he benefitted from knowing the right people in the right place.
"I'm not like Punk, who before he was a wrestler, was a video-game enthusiast, trading cards and stuff like that. And then he gets into wrestling, knows the right people and gets a push just because he knows somebody.”
The former X-Division champion continued to say that he does not have any UFC ambitions, and the only reason that he decided to compete in this fight is to see how he performs. However, he wouldn’t turn down an opportunity to fight Punk, if offered. Cash was also not happy with the manner in which CM Punk departed from the WWE back in January 2014.
"You just simply quit an amazing job. It's an amazing job. You make a lot of money. Your merchandise sales are incredible. You travel the world. On top of that, you're one of the main headliners and you're crying about it. I'm sorry, buddy. That's just ego shooting out, one for the ages."
Cash was also not impressed with the UFC for disrespecting its fighters, by giving CM Punk the opportunity to fight at a pay-per-view and paying him half a million dollars for it.
Cash said that that he does not respect CM Punk, as he never paid his dues and would love to be given an opportunity to step inside the Octagon with Punk.
"I would be there with bells on it," Cash said. "I would love to fight that f*cker, I really would. ... He would be in for a very rude awakening. That f*cker couldn't beat my meat; he couldn't."
