Submitted by Aaron Rift on 06/11/2018 at 01:13 AM


Michael Jackson, CM Punk's opponent at UFC 225, issued the following statement regarding the fight:

Last night was an incredible experience that Iíll never forget.
Let me start by thanking @cmpunk for the opportunity, Iím aware I wouldnít be here without him. As Iíve said in multiple times, and to the man himself, I have nothing but respect for Phil. He has done something that many would NEVER consider doing; his heart could fill the United Center.

As far as the fight, I hit him with some heat and looked to finish the fight in the 1st, but he kept coming. I made the right play and played it smart, knowing the circumstances I was in and what was at stake if I were to lose.

As I anticipated, I played the heel coming into Chicago, and looks like Iíll continue being the heel once Iím gone. Many have misinterpreted what I said in my post fight interview with @joerogan, thatís your opinion and I canít help that.

Much respect to Phil, @dukeroufus, and his team at @roufusport. And thank you to @krubobperez, @shonuffstuff, @pjmiletich, and the rest of my team for the preparation leading up to #TruthvsPunk. #UFC225
