in light of Mickey Gall being a legit beast, does CM Punk deserve another shot

    giving CM Punk MIckey Gall as a 1st fight was truthfully quite unfair. I'm not sure if there's anyone in the roster he can actually beat, but it would be cool if they raffle an opportunity to fight CM Punk for charity or something

    I guess Gall is pretty skilled, not that they could know that they signed him as basically a nobody.....But even guys just breaking into the pros have tons more experience than Punk

    They should have let Punk fight that Michael Jackson guy

    Here's my take from a few months ago:
    ______________
    I didn't really say this at the time cause people were too emotional about Punk to perhaps take this clearly, but here's a different perspective for those who are interested:

    Is a guy in his early 20s, with 2 pro fights, really that much less of a threat that a guy in his mid 30s with with 20-30 pro fights?

    Fresh young dude, in his athletic prime (not necessarily martial arts prime), in good physical condition, no battle scars, no taxes on the body, no surgeries no lingering injuries...

    VS

    A more experienced fighter, multiple surgeries, tested chin (perhaps cracked), lingering injuries, taxed with age tolled with damage.

    Not saying that it is black or white, or that it is always one or the other, but I'm guessing the answer lies somewhere in between.
    -------------------------

    Further validated by Mickey's recent performance

    They're going to because of money. CM Punk still draws. Until he stops drawing is when they cut him.

    I think so. They need to gift him with one or two wins then put him on the desk.

    The problem is there are no match ups for Punk that would be considered 'gifts'. He's that bad.

    Indeed man. It's difficult. I just don't wanna see the guy on the desk with an 0-3 record which is probably going to happen...

    Another chance at what? An MMA career in the most elite organization there is? No. No he doesn't.

    He deserves to live out his dream in the amateur circuit.

    Oh they're out there considering he's 0-1, I don't it's crazy to match him up with a "jobber"

    Gall is a real go-getter. Campaigns hard for fights, calls people out, gets the fights and wins. Nice persistence!

    I cannot un-see that "punch" that he threw before he got taken down.

    Agreed, having that mini tourney where the winner fights CM Punk made no sense. Both guys already had way more combat experience than Punk, and you're going to let the better fighter of the two fight Punk ? Made no sense. I think Michael Jackson would of still beaten him, he has some striking behind him...that punch Punk threw looked like something you'd see from a youtube street fight, I'm not even kidding.

    To be fair he looked confused halfway through throwing it because he knew Gall wasn't there anymore....Looked like he almost wanted to take it back but it was too late

    But yeah not a good look
