    It's not impressive when you're 300 pounds fat boy

    As someone who took training to be a wrestler when I was in my late teens early 20s (I hated the politics and popularity contest). If you can't get a 400lb man up and slam him using the techniques they use, shoot yourself. A good trainer can teach a 90lb nerd to do it as long as the fatty knows how to help lol. Your support of CM punk being above average is laughable to anyone who knows. The dude has the athleticism of a 15 year old who knows nothing outside of playing video games. I'm amazed someone that clumsy and awkward actually made a successful career at anything that requires athleticism. So Kudos on him for that. it just proves to me why I don't waste my time with that soap opera. Last couple times I watched it, I thought (Wow these people suck!). Maybe I should have actually stuck it out lol. If Punk could do it, anyone can.

    Of course he would, And he would beat most average amateur fighters too.

    However, Sherdog is an mma site for people interested in martial arts, with a lot of specialists And decent fighters, so most guys here would probably beat CM or at least give him a good fight.

    Bare minimum, in my opinion. It's more important than sex and marriage.

    He landed a few legs kicks in the 1st round. Granted, they were very ineffective low kicks because he was very stiff in delivering them (because of nerves, I'm sure). But still. He was trying to counter punches with leg kicks, that's smart fighting.

    People aren't giving CM Punk enough credit. Plus FFS, he went the distance. yeah, he was toyed with, but he kept resisting up to the last minute. Props to him. Obviously, he'll never be a UFC level fighter, but the dude can fight, and he is scrappy.

    Lol give it more years that will be around the world. Once robots do all the work, people going be all fat on hubber wheelchairs, like that disney movie Wall-E .. and have robot boxing and mma. Before it goes pure robot fighting. We have humans vs cyborgs vs robots. Humans body parts getting ripped off.

    I think an average woman off the street could kick his ass, that fucking guy looks like a 50 year old drug addict .

    I’d pick the average logger, construction worker, or black man over Punk.

    I'm sure. Most people don't even have any training so he's at least got training and experience even if it's not much. I know we rip on him for being a poor professional fighter, but just because he's not UFC caliber doesn't mean he's subhuman. That implies that we average blokes are at the level of pro fighters, doesn't it?

    Haha these threads are pure gold.

    First it was "Could CM Punk beat any guy in the UFC"
    Then it was "Could CM Punk beat anyone in the UFC male or female"
    Then it was "Could CM Punk beat anyone in UFC history"

    Well finally, with this thread, I can finally answer yes. CM Punk could probably beat the average guy on the street.

    I don't know about off the street but for sure I'd take the average man if he was given 4 years to train at Roufusport like Punk was. That was an embarrassing effort given the amount of time he had to train.

    Punk lacks a couple things that are important in any fighting, nevertheless street fighting: athleticism, explosiveness, and skill.

    He does have balls though

    getting in a street fight with other untrained morons for 30 seconds doesn't teach you how to fight.
