    Why is he fighting Mike Jackson? We all know what's going to happen, Jackson will win and have a bigger name than the majority of the top 10 fighters in the UFC.

    But he sucks so he's just going to lose in his next fight and every other UFC fight he has after CM Punk..the ufc legit doesn't know how to make stars.

    They could have found some elite amateur wrestler with no fights so you can have hope he might become something.

    Mike Jackson isn't anything, never was anything and never will be anything.

    UFC fails once again

    That is a little harsh on Mike Jackson. He already made it further then most will.

    Other then that I agree they missed the boat. They should have made CM Punk vs The Green Ranger.

    Thats the money fight !

    Do current day wrestling fans even care about CM Punk anymore?

    He’s been gone for awhile and he doesn’t have that “legitimize the baddassery of big time rasslers” thing that Brock had going for him. I don’t imagine most wrestling fans expecting CM Punk to be successful in MMA.

    I just don’t see the crossover appeal

    This fight makes sense. Legitimately the 2 worst guys on the roster. Why the hell not - it will sell PPVs.

    Even Bellators Dada5000 and Kimbo was more legit than this fight and had more ramifications in the long run. UFC is trying to dieded themselves or something, I don't get it...

    no doubt it was a more real fight..not even close

    think what you want about Kimbo but he had real wins. Houston alexander is a real fighter and kimbo beat him. who did he lose to Matt Mitrione? ask fedor about him

    Neither of these two will ever beat a real fighter

    The problem with trying to build a star in MMA is that you have to actually win a fight here and there.

    CM Punk should have been brought up in RFA/Legacy, CFFC, or any of the other feeders.

    Fighters with less than 3 fights shouldn't really be in the UFC unless they were GOAT level in some other combat sport.

    I know who he but im saying I'm sure he has a decent background in boxing and shit. He will probably box punks ears off. There's bums and then there's cm punk. He had virtually no background so even two 0-1 mma fighters are not equal.

    Should have been just CM Punk vs Cybro.

    Wrassling fans will watch it, Feminists will watch it... sherbros will stream it... illegally.

    It's like Stone Cold vs Chyna.
