CM Punk’s Opponent Reacts To Dana White’s Harsh Criticism

Former WWE superstar CM Punk made another appearance inside the octagon over the weekend. Following the fighter’s tough loss, opponent Mike Jackson has come forward with a few words.

CM Punk went toe-to-toe with fellow 0-1 fighter Mike Jackson at UFC 225 on June 9. Jackson ultimately earned a unanimous decision victory over his opponent, but was largely criticized for failing to get a finish.

In the UFC 225 Post-Fight press conference, UFC President Dana White would go on to voice his displeasure with Jackson’s performance.

“Michael Jackson I’m not happy with. This guy acting like a goof ball tonight. You get this opportunity to come in and fight CM Punk and you’re doing like bolo punches to the body on top. Never looked like he was trying to finish the fight, ever.

“It looked like he could have finished the fight a few times, never tried. I don’t know what that guy did for a living before we gave him his shot, but whatever it was he needs to go back and do that again. He’s 0-2 as far as I’m concerned.”

“I got the sense that he’s a complete f**king idiot and I couldn’t wait for that fight to end. I regretted not putting it on fight pass.”

Taking to Twitter, Mike Jackson has decided to address some of the concerns.

“I hit him with punches and elbows and he stayed standing. I didn’t want to run in and get caught with dumb shit. Imagine being the guy who loses to CM Punk!”

“I was looking at my corner for instruction”

The fighter even later offered a few respectful words to his opponent.

“All the respect to you, sir.”
