It was a great night of fights at UFC 203 this past Saturday. The heavyweights shined after a night of exciting action, though. Fabricio Werdum’s crazy kick against Travis Browne was memorable enough, without even talking about his front kick on Browne’s coach.
The Brazilian has likely set himself up for a title rematch with the winner of UFC 203′ main event. Stipe Miocic successfully defended his title against Alistair Overeem with a crushing knockout. For CM Punk, it was a terrible night, as he did not share the glory of the mentioned heavyweight winners.
CM Punk Got Destroyed
After 18 months of waiting for CM Punk to debut for the UFC, it was clear from the first moments at UFC 203 that he shouldn’t have been in the octagon. Mickey Gall, although only 2-0 as a pro, made it a very short night for Punk.
The former WWE champion looked lost. It did not help that he’d never actually been in a fight before joining the world’s largest MMA promotion. The backlash from the fans has been as you’d expect. Criticism of both Punk’s performance and the UFC’s hunt for another cash cow has flowed freely since UFC 203.
UFC color commentator Joe Rogan said CM Punk’s UFC debut was a delusional idea. Punk himself has stated he isn’t sure what will come of his fighting career. The consensus opinion is that he should fight at amateur level before even considering fighting for the UFC again.
It’s fair to say CM Punk’s debut at UFC 203 could not have gone worse. You’ll be able to judge for yourself by the video on page 2, but one particular face you might recognize has now weighed in.
