Former WWE star CM Punk suffered ridicule from fight fans world wide after his devastating defeat to Mickey Gall back in his mixed martial arts debut. For his octagon return at UFC 225, the result was much of the same.
CM Punk faced off against fellow 0-1 fighter Mike Jackson for UFC 225 in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois. This time around, Punk suffered a lopsided unanimous decision loss to his opponent.
Speaking on the podcast I Could Never Be, mixed martial arts phenom and UFC star Sage Northcutt offered his opinion on the fight.
“He’s a very nice guy, and I know that he’s got to be putting in the training and effort. It takes a while to be able to get to the, I guess, get all the skill set that these guys that train 20 or 30 years for, have been in the UFC for so long, have trained their whole lives for. So, he came from WWE and now fighting for the UFC, I think it took him so much courage. It takes anybody courage to be able to step out there in the octogon and fight, and I think he did a great job.”
“I guess it’s up to him to see what he’s going to do, but I know that if he does have another fight, he’ll be training super hard for it, and he’s got to. And if he does it, he definitely has the courage and bravery to get out there because not everybody can do that.”
