Joe Rogan not a fan of CM Punk fighting on UFC PPV Submitted by Aaron Rift on 05/24/2018 at 10:09 AM
During his recent podcast, UFC commentator Joe Rogan talked about CM Punk's first UFC fight against Mickey Gall:
“What was really weird watching him walk to the cage was he was approaching it like a pro wrestling fight. Cause he had done so many of these pro wrestling matches that he was walking to the cage with pro wrestling mannerisms and everything and I was watching this and I did like an internal head shake. Like oh f–k,” Rogan said.
“It was a terrible idea. Whoever on his side said that he could fight Mickey Gall, you’re out of your f–king mind. Watch that kid fight once. That kid is very good on the ground. Very good. Stand up’s not bad either. He’s tough as s–t and he’s smart. He’s clever and he’s mean. He’s a mean f–ker.”
Regarding Punk's upcoming UFC PPV fight against Michael Jackson, Rogan said the following:
“It shouldn’t even be on the ‘Tuesday Night Contender’ show. It should be in some amateur event somewhere. That’s really what they are. They’re guys learning how to compete. They’re in the first fight on the pay-per-view. That’s f–king crazy.”
