Please tell me he's coming back
He was making so many errors that there was no room for even 1 more I guess.
No more room for errors.
I was one of the few who wanted CM Punk to win his debut and prove the doubters wrong. It would be an amazing lesson for those wasting their lives away on the couch - it is never too late to follow your passion. If an actor can work hard for 2 years and become a legit fighter, you can go chase your dreams too.
Unfortunately real life doesn't work that way. Sometimes, no matter how much passion you have for something, you are just not talented enough. Or maybe you started too late and the boat has sailed. CM Punk became a lesson on the dangers of having unrealistic expectations.
Nonetheless, he got paid 500k to get beaten by Mickey Gall for 2 minutes. That's more money than what some people would see in their entire lifetime - dude earned it in 2 minutes. Not such a bad deal at the end of the day. Even though he is justifiably treated as a meme around these parts, I can't really hate on a guy who is just trying to make the best out of his situation.
I think he won the first round of his second fight
CM Punk think he good
Bisping, Overeem, Nate, think CM Punk he bad
CM Punk wrong
Bisping, Overeem, Nate right
There you are.
legend . Great story, like a rocky movie. Proved all the doubters wrong
"Doubt me now" - CM Punk
No fan of CM Punk, but it certainly takes a degree of courage to step into the octagon.
I'm a Punk fan (wrestling wise) but I never understood that logic. If the UFC came to virtually any of us and said "We'll pay you 3 million dollars to train, get in shape, learn to fight, promote you and then put on in a TV fight". I think most of us would take that offer. Granted, you are risking taking damage to health but for 3 million or more, that's probably worth the risk.
It might have been some minor courage but it was really just a good financial decision.
people always bring this up but most of us arent already millionaires. most of us would do it for 5 grand, but we arent cm punk. I dont particulsdly like cm punk, never liked him much as a wrestler, but he was already loaded
I'll take an ass whooping for 300k. I'd go all out for that first few minutes gas and tap to strikes visa vis Bobb Sapp.
If he wanted to prove himself he should have gone into a small promotion to see if he had what it takes. That's what all the other pro wrestlers did. This was a vanity project for a wannabe, nothing else.
He lived his dream as well and took all the arrows for trying. I actually respect him for going Ina big stage and trying. More than can be said for 97% of the posters who deride him.
He came out hot, gall iced him with the take down , rest is rudimentary result
I'd do it for 50k. You can whoop my ass for fiddy
LOL @ this douche still trying to act like he is an MMA fighter. Please.
His arrogance was his downfall. His entitlement to skip ahead of those who worked from the bottom to reach the UFC is something that might’ve struck him too late, he knew he was an imposter who got ahead on his name alone.
He also trained for 4 years full time and was still a BJJ white belt. That’s pathetic and I’ve known hobbyists who’ve got blue belts in half that time. Doesn’t appear that he worked hard at all given the opportunity, his arrogance and delusion being the reason.
