Former WWE star CM Punk went toe-to-toe with fellow 0-1 fighter Mike Jackson at UFC 225 on Saturday, June 9. Jackson earned a dominant unanimous decision victory over Punk, though the fighter has been accused of having possibly had the ability to finish the fight sooner.
Speaking at the UFC 225 Pot-Fight Press Conference, UFC President Dana White offered his thoughts on the matter.
“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.”
