    Talk all the shit you want about Cathal, but he has fought 21 times (won 17) and had his first pro fight 6 years ago.

    CM Punk has zero amateur fights, zero professional fights, zero martial arts background (a little bit of karate training does not count) and he has been training MMA for only 7 months.

    Cathal would absolutely murder him and no athletic comission should allow this fight to happen.
    UFC should sign some non impressive dude with less than 5 pro fights.

    You say that Punk owned him on Twitter (which he didn't by the way), but Pendred would send him to a hospital. It would be Punk's first and last fight.

    lol do people think this fight might actually happen? that fight would never be sanctioned.

    he has 21 pro fights under his belt, and he's calling out cm punk...

    Yeah I don't think anyone who knows what they are talking about it going to say that this would be a competitive fight. I think the reason why it seems like a good fight to make is because Cathal has had some sub par performances in the octagon and he takes a pretty safe approach to fighting. But yeah if he fought Brooks he wouldn't have anything to worry about and could pretty much do w/e he wants.

    The ideal thing would be to give Brooks a 1-0 or 0-1 type guy, but what I have wondered about this is if the guy they signed smashes Brooks do they keep that guy and give him more fights in the UFC? Would be weird to see them sign a guy for a one off, the guy owns, then gets sent packing.

    He did not called him out, he just said that his striking looked terrible. It was Punk who began saying that Pendred actually sucks as a fighter.

    No way he fights someone with 5 UFC fights or whatever he has. He will fight another n00b and I think he has said as much.

    We've been talking about this Punk guy for years now.
    And nothing has happened.

    Are there any links to Brooks/CM Punk sparring/striking?

    It would be a bad fight to take as the twitter beef would be hug and the fight would likely suck.

    I don't think so. And I don't think they would ever make public a video like that.

    Not that I know of but he said that they have filmed everything he has done (Sparring, Exhibition fights, etc) and it will all come out eventually.

    If it is not announced in the next month I doubt it happens in 2015.

    This all has been weird.

    I think the closest to the truth of his talent was when Funky said that Punk has a long way to go.

    There's a country music video with him spazzing out in it (I think supposed to be shadow boxing)


    There's one youtube vid with him "hitting the pads" where he appears like he's an elderly person attempting to keep active for rehabilitation purposes after several strokes


    I don't have the links

    Just because it's a debut I bet everyone knows way in advance.

    Which is why I doubt it's in 2015 at this point.

    That is because you have seen him fighting other elite level fighters, not some noobie that began training few months ago.

    punk vs cathal is literally equal to a JV wrestler facing a State Champ.
