So last night on ppv, I couldn’t resist watching “UFC 203” ’cause like most UFC and WWE fans, I too was curious on how CM Punk was gonna do in his first MMA caged fight. I just had to see it for myself, ya know? A lot of people were wondering whether CM Punk was gonna do bad or do good but as expected CM Punk did pretty badly. Which is expected since CM Punk doesn’t have much of an martial arts and MMA background. CM Punk is a professional wrestler. He’s got a huge background in wrestling instead so it was expected that Punk wouldn’t do well against Mickey Gall. The fight last night was an easy win for Mickey Gall. Gall beat Punk in a bloody mess and Gall wouldn’t let Punk get a chance to do anything either. Punk tried his best to fight back and defend himself but Gall was too tough. It was a pretty good fight, though ’cause I was impressed with Mickey Gall.
After the fight got over with, I gained even more respect for CM Punk. That guy has been my favorite wrestler for years. Love Punk or hate him, what that guy did was pretty ballsy. He really was brave and courageous to do what he did last night.
I loved Punk’s speech after the fight ’cause he said that life is about getting knocked down and getting back up. He also said you must believe in yourself. He said that if you want to go after your dreams, you can’t listen to anybody and go for it. Which is good advice and I’ve had that attitude for a long time now. Going after what I want and not giving a shit what anyone thinks.
So what is Punk’s future gonna be like in MMA? Will his MMA career be a success or will it be short? Who knows. We’ll have to wait and see. I’m pretty sure Dana White will give Punk another chance so we’ll see how Punk does on his next fight. Keep in mind, Brock Lesnar lost his first UFC fight to Frank Mir but came out on top after so the same could happen to Punk.
It was a pretty good ppv though. I thought the best fights of the night last night were Jessica Andrade vs. Joanne Calderwood, CM Punk vs. Mickey Gall and Stipe Miocic vs. Alistair Overeem. The other two fights RIvera vs. Faber and Browne vs. Werdum were pretty boring as fuck, though.
I wish CM Punk the best of luck in his MMA career. He’s gonna have to learn that this isn’t WWE and MMA is a whole different thing.
