    I train MMA recreationally..I cant begin to explain to tell you how much respect I have for REAL fighters. I train BJJ as well and the purple belts destroy my life easily. I'm considered to be in great shape in my class, I have great power, my coach says I am very impressive for a noob at BJJ. I have 4 years of boxing experience and let me tell you...the few purple belts easily nuke my life within seconds.

    How in God's name will CM punk beat Gall? I just dont see it...am I missing something here? I am not a hater at all..I like CM Punk but this is not a sport you just adopt and conquer in. Brock was a legend at wrestling and thats the best sport to have a base in to do well in the UFC.

    EDIT: Thread title meant to say how can a noob beat a purple belt in an MMA fight.

    He's been training for close to 2 years since he signed with the UFC with absolutely nothing else to do in his life plus however much he trained before that. If he's serious, then I'm sure he's training almost everyday for multiple hours per day. He's probably at purple belt level or close to it himself by now.

    I think Gall can find a way to beat the more seasoned pro.

    2 years is nothing, and he's 37. Even the guys he train with are saying he needs a lot of work still. He wont ever fight in the UFC he will always get "injured" bet on that.

    All I'm saying is that 2 years of consistent training everday is definitely enough to hang with most purple belts.

    Or at least enough to survive.

    I hear ya TS. I think a lot of people agree that it's going to be a very tough task for CM for a lot of the reasons you outlined.

    All true, and he also has one of the best teams and coaching staff completely behind him. I wouldn't bet on him, but I believe he has a chance.

    Did punk ever wrestle? Like non WWE style wrestling? A little wrestling background goes a long way on the mat. A strong understanding of the mechanics of movement on the ground translates pretty well and may even be achieved in some part from WWE wrestling. If you understand the mechanics it is just a matter of knowing where not to be.

    My understanding is that Punk has been training MMA for a few years now. We have to remember that learning to not get subbed by a good BJJ guy is a lot easier than learning to sub a good BJJ guy. When you think of the great grapplers you roll with and what they do you also have to remember that you are engaging in a grappling match with them. In that situation you are looking for one of three outcomes, you sub them, they sub you or the clock runs out. If your focus is on striking and standing up or stalling out rather than engaging on the ground it becomes a lot easier to offset their belt level.

    I'll tell you what, if punk can last all three rounds I would be surprised and give him credit just for lasting.

    It's a real odd situation.

    On one hand we have Gall who has only two pro fights and some experience rolling on the ground.

    On the other, we have Cm punk. He's an old, ex pro wrestler who has probably taken every vitamin C in the book, up until he signed with the UFC.

    Supposedly he's been training real hard and he's had a lot of extra time, considering he's been "injured" a number of times and he planned on signing with the UFC a few years ago. That at least tells me he probably trained a lot before he even asked for a fight, knowing he might look like a fool if he came in with no experience.

    CM punk has all the time in the world, hes famous, he has money and he has brought in very experienced MMA fighters to train with.

    Is this enough for good ole CM punk?

    Hint:

    He can't, and he won't.

    If he even steps into the cage that is.
