    Seriously this gif gets me every time. It looks so scripted with Punk looking down after that grade 4 punch.

    I mean, what if Punk took a dive? Not that he’d win anyway but that looks so sketchy.



    Or is he really just that bad?



    *i honestly think many average Sherdoggers would wreck Punk.

    There were some Asian dudes around the time fightpass came in that were super suspect as well but yeah probably. Not exactly surprising given he was basically an ordinary Joe thrown in against a decent prospect.

    Well he lasted longer than 13 seconds.

    Who knows how good he is, the UFC matched him up so you didn't find out.

    CM Punk is a hobbyist, and not a particularly talented one. Matching him up against another hobbyist in Mike Jackson was the right call.

    We might get to see more of his skill-set this time. He shouldn't be fighting professionals.

    I'd say Charlie Brenneman considering I remember him getting knocked down by every opponent he faced in the ufc if im not mistaken

    I think it was BJJ Scout who put a video out about it. Punk did a lot of things right from the bottom, but Gall was just a step ahead the whole time.

    Punk deserves the millions. He's putting his life on the line

    Are you guys ever going to get past this shitty thread ? How many of this same thread have there been. 50 ? 100 ? More ???

    Dead horses don’t just get beaten here. They get stomped into the dirt, as well.

    Brennaman is far from the worst fighter the UFC has ever seen. He was something like 4-7 in the UFC, but overall his record is much better at 19-8.

    It is hard to believe that an athletic commission allowed him to fight Rumble Johnson though. It was not too long before Rumble made the move to heavyweight.

    It's kind of an insult to every other fighter on the roster to even make the comparison.

    Outside of MMA I'm almost entirely ignorant of this guy. Even knowing that he is a former WWE star comes from hearing that he started training MMA.

    But I guess I get why he keeps coming up even though; it's that celebrity fascination. But yeah, I think he is the worst post SEG fighter in UFC history.

    Punk has CIndy Dandois level striking without the submission game.

    I'll reserve my opinion until after his 2nd attempt as a sample size 1 of is just not enough. But my hopes aren't terribly high that he'll be suddenly somewhat fluent. I've been wrong before though.

    There are a lot of really low level one and done TUF fighters.

    Toney would've been competitive if he take UFC training seriously

    No, because CM is not a fighter.

    May I ask who the female in your avatar is? She looks like I should know who she is.

    No I won’t change.

    I’m a troll whose been at it here since 2004.

    Currently in the “gearing towards getting banned” phase of my current form.

    Basically that means I get bored and dial up the shit posting and if that doesn’t work then I’ll shift into full on ban-me-mode.

    It’s similar to the life cycles of a butterfly.
