CM Punk Killer Mike Jackson Responds To Callout From WWE Champ

Former WWE star CM Punk made his big return to the octagon at UFC 225 on Saturday. Facing off against fellow 0-1 fighter Mike Jackson, Punk suffered a lopsided unanimous decision loss. Now another WWE star has come forward to challenge Jackson.

Speaking in a recent Instagram Live video, as seen within the footage above, former WWE champion Daniel Bryan was recently asked if he could beat Mike Jackson in a fight. Bryan responded, “I could beat him on the ground for sure, I think. If WWE let me fight in the UFC, maybe.”

Speaking to FanSided, Mike Jackson has since come forward with a response to the call out.

“Someone sent me a picture and I remember seeing the image. I just kept scrolling, didn’t look at the headline. My mentions have been crazy right now. My Instagram mentions are like YouTube comments right now. A friend of mine, who is a journalist reached out and said, ‘Yo, did you hear Daniel Bryan called you out?’ I was like, ‘What are you talking about?’ He sends it to me and I remember seeing that headline. I was like, ‘Yo, this is getting out of control now.’”

“He says, ‘Man, I can beat him on the ground in a UFC fight. ‘Look Daniel Bryan; I will do you worse than I did your man Punk because I will have no reservations in punching this guy in the face 100-percent. And at will.”
