    Of course, this is an older interview but I never really paid attention to this punk guy til recently when they showed him tonight in the cage. Dude looked spooked as hell. That Mickey Gall kid is going to tap him.

    Damn, a surprisingly cogent statement that I can't argue against honestly.

    I don't agree that it affects how the other fighters are perceived, it's an individual sport where each fight/card is judged on its own merit. Punk isn't stealing anyones spot, he's just bringing more numbers to an already existing event. No one is getting hurt except possibly CM punk

    There's nothing wrong with a freakshow fight every now and then. At least they aren't feeding him to a killer like PRIDE did to people like him.

    What if CM Punk knows something we dont? He doesn't come off as an idiot. Surely if just a year or two with a good camp was all he had then he wouldn't even bother competing in the ufc. There has to be more to his background than he gives off surely?

    Diaz is salty that this amateur will get more paid more for his fight than Nate got for most of his career probably.

    I hope they wouldn't. But if they do, it's still an easy payday.

    Brock actually took a challenge and fought top fighters.
    Punk is the exact and complete opposite.

    Aside from his wrestling experience, Brock had a pro fight before he was signed with the UFC.

    His demeanor and body language is that of a dead man walking. I think he knows it too. That Gall kid was a brown belt in BJJ and Punk seemed to have wished that Mike Jackson was his opponent rather.
