    If this was true, he'd actually make a point to get real experience in amateur fights or low level pro fights.

    He signed a contract with the UFC for a reason, and it wasn't about "proving himself".

    The reason is still proving himself.
    The reason why he chose UFC specifically is because they had the best offer he could get. Should he have refused?
    Yes, he has better choice than average Joe - is it unexpected?

    In any other org, he still could've fought 2-0 guy for his 1st fight and 0-1 for the second.
    Only makes sense.

    Fair to say it's not small, but Americans certainly don't shit about it. I only remember Lesnar pounding a small Asian guy.

    I would say Batista is far most serious about it than punk. There is no way punk was considering this as a future career. Dude took over 2 years to even take his first fight, and how long since, like he's young enough to take his time even IF he had talent.

    Lesnar didn't care what Americans thought about K-1. He fought in K-1 because they offered him a lot of cash just like UFC does.
    Just like UFC does to Punk.

    Batista is not serious about MMA, and never was. Yes, he was relatively prepared for the fight, but it was part of his training he does at his spare time.
    He had wrestling career, he had movie career. He never had MMA career.

    Punk has MMA career. He dedicated himself to it. He doesn't do anything but.

    This seems hard for people to understand for..... some reason. Nobody expects him to fight for 20/20.


    But in that case, shut up about how you'd fight on the fight pass prelims. No, no he would not. Because then he'd make shit. It's fine if he doesn't want to do that. Then he shouldn't bullshit us.

    really i dont think he is bullshiting us. Think about it, he have hes contract and will get his cash, no matter where he fights. I really believe he would rather fight in the shadows with an also unskilled fighter than making a spectacle of a fight that for sure doesn't deserve the light its getting. I dont think someone would really fight in the main Card knowing that he really don't deserve it skillwise and knowing that all the People watching knows that he doesn't deserve it and just want to see the freakshow...
    Do you really think he wants to lose in front of all those People again?

    He might actually want to be on the non PPV part of the card, but I doubt the UFC would allow that.

    Like you wouldn't. Life is a game of monopoly, the more cash you have the better you can play it. He may suck, but has more fans(who normally don't pay attention to the ufc) than anyone else fighting on the card. Makes pure sense buisness wise. It's not like he is claiming to be something he's not, there is a good reason ufc is paying him that much.

    Why should he ask for 20/20 when he's worth 1-2 mil? Is he taking money from starving children? If he doesn't ask for 1-2 mil does that get spread out so the rest of the fighters get bigger pays... No, and you're not dumb enough to think that either. If Punk doesn't take what he's realistically worth, it just profits the pockets of money hungry, low paying bosses from the UFC.

    Enough of the humble act. He better focus on not looking like pure shit against easier opponent.

    Before his UFC debut, I thought he trained BJJ w/Gracies, so had a chance.

    Why do you write people with capital letter? Just to show that people = very important factor?

    only a sith is absolute!

    no ist just the german keybord... the keybord choose from alone what words will get a capital letter.
    In german all nouns are being written with capital letters.
    Like this: In German all Nouns are being written with Capital Letters.

    So the true is, sometimes is the keybord alone, but sometimes i just push the shift button bc of Habituation...
