He's facing Mike Jackson. With that said does anyone think he'll win or lose? It's been two years since his debut, so I think he's going to win.
What does everyone think?
Late reply but a reply none the less.
I had a feeling that he was going to lose and looking back on his form, he deserved too lose. His kicks were ridiculous and I was actually wondering why Jackson didn't try and perform a takedown on him when Punk was doing the slowest roundhouse kicks ever.
A sad situation all around.
Punk got his fight...but...what was it worth?
Jackson is now fired because apparently he was "toying" with Punk
The event didn't draw as high as expected.
This is coming from a CM Punk fan.
I didn't see the fight, but I heard that commentators were openly speculating Jackson was being paid off to make the fight last till the third round. Apparently this is how badly he was doing even as he was winning.
So he either toyed with Punk or missed blantant, obvious opprotunities to end the fight. I also heard he was fired just cause the fight was so bad.
I'd have to re-watch the match to see if it's true that he was toying with Punk, but man oh man...if Punk had been training for all this time and that's what he came out with. I'm not lying when I say that I think I could have probably caught one of his spinning kicks, they were so painfully slow and looked like they had zero impact on Jackson.
I don't like talking like this because, yeah, if someone was to call me out - I wouldn't be able to give anyone some kind of MMA fight but still.
Anyway, more power to him, he did what he wanted. A lot of fans followed him into the UFC but judging by the buy rates for this event, they've decided to tune out. I think there's a good chance a lot more will tune out now.
Hopefully he'll find another platform to perform on.
