    His base (apart from WWE) is BJJ. He's sure as shit not better at BJJ than Royce so no, CM Punk could not beat current Royce. Unless he landed that massive punch he missed in his only ever fight.

    Not at all. Royce would finish him in the first round. Age isn't much of a factor when there is a massive skill gap like that. Maybe if royce was over 65?

    I'd still favor Royce. Barring injuries, grappling skill seems to age well since it doesn't rely on speed and reflexes like striking.

    Royce even if he was a 80 year old on a wheelchair with arthritis would beat Cm Punk

    Helio could beat CM Punk in the 1st round, and he's dead.

    Royce would only fight other legends at this point, so this fight makes a lot of sense.

    In line to the left.
    Royce just beat Ken Shamrock. This fight would make money.
