    His stand up is so bad that I legit think Cm Punk would have had a chance if he wasn't taken down so early.

    I hope Sage asks for a rematch, goes and trains with Wonderboy, then pulls a Conor and beats the guy who subbed him in the second round.

    The dude was just fighting amateur last year. At least he does 1 thing really well and thats his BJJ, as he is a legit brown belt from a good school. He's young, he's gotta start working that striking and hopefully he picks it up.

    Good enough to drop Sage and make him panic wrestle

    CM Punk swung at Mickey's astral projection.

    Sage fan can't handle reality. Just a reminder. Sage had less than nothing for him on the ground. Than got dropped standing. Than tapped out.

    Hasn't been fighting for very long and he's more of a BJJ guy. If the UFC were smart they'd avoid that Hardy fight at all costs and just develop Gall properly. This whole Sage/Paige saga should be enough for them to realize this.

    Lmao this punch was so bad I thought Punk was trying to throw a knee. I didnt even know it was a punch at first.

    I just don't get this. They had to discuss a strategy to come out of the gate with. "Come at him standing straight up and swing two feet over his head"

    Punk did exact what Duke Rufous told him to do; go listen to the tape - Duke says it on the walkout, close to when the hit they ref inspection spot IIRC.

    He has an awkward body position for strikes.. his stance is strange. I dont think he can do that much about it though.. he do has power though, as you can see from his GnP.. if he could transfer that to standing he would be "pretty" dangerous.

    He's about on the level of where I would expect a relative striking beginner to be. It's just unfortunate for us and for the credibility of MMA that he's been thrust into the limelight and on to a main card at such an early stage of his career. I can't blame him for the taking the opportunity with both hands.

    Mickey Gall doesn't need good striking. He can backpack his way to the belt.
