CM Punk made his second visit to the Octagon last night in Chicago and it wasn’t pretty.
The former WWE Superstar faced Mike Jackson, a MMA media member and 2011 Houston Golden Gloves Champ, in the opening bout on last night’s UFC 225 PPV from the United Center. While Punk did land a punch (19 to be exact) and secure a takedown in the contest, the story of this fight would be Jackson toying with a UFC fan who was given an opportunity of a lifetime because of his celebrity status.
Give credit where credit it due, Punk showed a ton of heart and his true fighting spirit in a spot where he could’ve easily quit at any given moment. He did everything he possibly could with the tools that he had. The man is a fighter through and through regardless of the outcome.
