CM Punk will have to wait on making his UFC debut, after the former WWE star suffered a shoulder injury in training.

According to ESPN.com’s Brett Okamoto, Punk’s trainer, Duke Roufus, confirmed Monday the 36-year-old injured his shoulder while rolling around.

"He got caught in a scramble, so right now he’s taking a little time off. He was doing great before that. His progress has been good. He’s got a great attitude and he’s a hard worker. … Our biggest thing is we want him to 101 percent before [we resuming training]. We don’t have a hard date for his fight to force the issue, so making sure he’s completely healthy is possible."

Roufus went on to say Punk could have his first UFC fight in 6-10 months.
