    A lot of the people who step into the cage, feel like they have atleast a chance to win. But in CM Punk's case, he must've known that he was going to get his ass kicked. Yet he still did it. Twice.

    You could consider that to be impressive on some level, though mostly just insanely stupid.

    Its a bit embarrassing to watch. I saw girl fights in HS with more athleticism and technique.

    Former UFC WW contender CM Punk going back to the WWE? Who would've thought? But good for him I guess.

    Absolutely wrong. He thought the EXACT opposite. Right from the first announcement with Rogan.
    Years of make believe and 'being the best in the world' had went to his head. He saw Brock had had success and even though he had no real background as a leap up like Brock had with college wrestling, he still thought he'd be able to come in and make an impact. No fucking way he thought he'd lose.

    Prime WWE CM Punk had a level of drawing ability based on Lesnar or Conor. It's amazing he gave that up to do UFC for some time.

    Good, he had no business in the UFC. He would've gotten his ass handed to him in amateur bouts, him in the top promotion in the world was a joke.

    Trust me. Any notions of him thinking that he was going to take the MMA scene by storm, would've been eroded in sparring sessions. He knew he was going to get his ass kicked.

    I hear you but I'm ashamed to say I've listened to hours of CM Punk on various podcasts and long interview forms. Superstar egos don't tend to think like we do. But who knows. You might be right. I think they probably went easy on him in sparring. I mean all the footage was a joke.

    He is really not that popular outside of the WWE. I don't even know why he was popular in the WWE tbh his body compared to 99% of the roster is pretty fkin ugly, maybe he is talented at fake fighting? But then again he would need at leqst good cardio and his cardio waw shit from what we saw.

    That's probably why he had his "loser" speech ready for the post-fight interview.

    On the other hand he has been faking confidence as a pro wrestling guy for years, so it wasn't hard for him to convince people that he was actually going to show up to win. That's what he has done for a living, making fake seem real. Exaggerating his abilities.

    The truth is that CM Punk's fights in the UFC were more akin to Johnny Knoxville fighting Butterbean in Jackass, than any sort of legitimate competition. Fortunately for him, he didn't get hurt too bad.

    I'd like to see him fight in the UFC again.

    Would have watched him fight Sage Northcutt lol.

    Absolutely no interest in watching him rassle though.
