    The lawsuit part was interesting since he said:
    That goes against a big part of the lawsuit & Couture is anti-UFC, but seemed to help their side of the argument

    I'm not sure I agree. By saying what he did I think he's implying that the UFC is a monopoly.

    You really think stating other orgs are allow fighters to make a living (due to UFC practices) is implying "monopoly"?

    It's too bad that most of the posters on Sherdog don't have a fraction of the respect for pro wrestling and the athletes in it as MMA fighters such as Randy Couture do. Not many posters on Sherdog would say this about CM Punk: "I think that he

    There has been many post that say that Punk is not an athlete, etc.
    Just because he never competed officially they assume he is not athletic - which is BS

    I think he was saying the door has been cracked open by the lawsuit. But maybe I misunderstood.

    Randy vs. Tito was pretty damn good too. Randy spanked Tito and made him cry. I also loved it when he came back to Heavyweight the last time and everybody was saying he's way too old and way too small to be fighting Tim Sylvia and Randy dominated Tim and took his belt. Then Gonzaga challenged him and people were scared for Randy because this was the guy who almost kicked Cro Cop's head right off and Randy just brutalized Gonzaga - left him a bloody mess while retaining his title. Left Napao in a puddle of blood. Then Randy had the guts to actually ask for Lesnar next. Brock TKO'd Randy and took his belt but Randy damn sure made Lesnar earn it!

    That was brutal. I think lots of "normal" people so to speak would've suffered a heavy concussion, broken neck or would've died.

    You definitely need to be a well conditioned athlete and a heavyweight with a strong neck to take such a massive shot.

    I think you're taking those comments wrong. All the ones I've seen point out that Punk has no athletic background but they're referring to the fact he has no background in a real competition format. Not that he's not athletic.

    Randy points that out in this interview as well when he compares him to Lesnar. Everyone knew Brock had a background and was very successful in real wrestling.

    What is the evidence that CM Punk specifically is athletic?
