    After clowning punk and basically guaranteeing he gets killed in the first round for his next fight i was promptly told by my friend that CM punk would probably beat me in a fight.... This did not sit well with me, in any event I took a short video before class doing some warm up pads with my coach. Im coming off a couple of lengthy injuries (Lower Back, Nose and knee) so im definitely more then a little rusty but I figured some sort of video is better then none. So who do you got sherdog? I got 10$ riding on this that you guys pick me so dont let me down sherbros!!!



    EDIT: For those asking about my other experience, I took Gold in white belt for nogi in an Accenssion and GTA classic, Bronze in a grappling industys event and 4 in the NoGi provincials, that was all 2 years ago. I hold my own with the high level high school wrestlers in my gym (All College Bound wrestlers), and I have a 2-1 record in Muay Thai.

    If that is you then are you just trained in boxing?

    CM Punk's strength is his ground game. If you didn't KO him then he has been training BJJ long enough with good enough people to tie you up quickly.

    Also looking at your boxing I think CM Punk would land the right hand of doom and once that happens it's curtains.

    how much do you weigh? Hard to get perspective, but I am guessing punk would also have some weight on you.

    You look quick and reasonably powerful. Also you're in way better shape than him. It's like you got to level up your character but he forgot to press the "confirm" button while training so he got none of the perks or points after all that time. BONUS: your face broadcasts open intelligence instead of delusion. But you don't need all that, should probably limit yourself to one arm and hopping on one leg to level the playing field

    If you were an average soccer mom with 2 months of training or more, yes you would beat CM punk, probably go to jail for manslaughter if you weren't careful

    Everyone at his own gym kicked his ass in during sparring so unless you're extraordinarily worse than average (including beginners who are trying to go light) then you would absolutely wreck him, just like everyone else.

    Step down on those punches a little more and you would knock that Pepsi tattoo off him

    Then obviously you would beat CM Punk. You have nice hands and movement. Enough to see that you have been training for a long time. CM Punk doesn't have that flow on the feet.

    The GTA classic is just fluff. Playing video games on top of MMA is cool.

    Hey man he got smashed by Mickey, but he’s still a good athlete( I promise you that despite his appearance) with a decent gym behind him. Your pad work is good and you look like a athlete yourself but if you have never fought or haven’t been training for about 3-4 year, I have cm punk without question.

    Punks striking is pretty suspect, but in the time I’ve been doing MMA I’ve realized just how big that gap really is between low level fighters mid tier and top tier fighters. You saw cm punk get smashed by a mid level fighter, don’t assume that anybody with some striking knowledge or MMA knowledge could do so.

    Edit: saw your resume up top, you might actually be able to fuck him up if I had to bet on it but my points still stand for other people who think someone like punk would be a cake walk for your average gym bum.

    Not sure I quite got that last line. My 1 caveat to all this is last year april I dropped everything else to become strictly a boxer as there is no money in MMA and I had an equal love for both sports so it only made sense to go the boxing route due to my connections and how amazing my trainer is This is how the debate started, he said im an MMA has been and would get smoked by punk, while im more of a never been since I never did shit in mma I still think with a full camp i would come out on top.

    You would probably outstrike him pretty bad, your boxing looks crisp. Thing is, we are talking mma: Punk would go for a takedown and also probably would outgrapple you. Punk is at least a journeyman/advanced grappler.

    So all depends on your takedown defence i guess.

    hell i'll throw a vote out there for you. IDK what your grappling experience is but I do know CM Punk is not a good grappler. Your stand up looks better than punks at least....
