Joe Rogan’s Reaction to CM Punk
UFC color commentator Joe Rogan was not impressed by what he saw at UFC 203. CM Punk looked like a seven year old child trying to fight his dad. All Mickey Gall had to do was take him down, pound a few punches on his head and then get the submission finish.
Many are asking the question of what CM Punk should do next, here’s Joe Rogan’s advice:
“I admire CM Punk for taking the chance, I really do,” Rogan said. “But, it was delusional. That’s my feeling, it was my feeling watching him hit the bag, when I was watching him punch things. It’s not like he can’t ever learn, Visit Wrestling Inc.but there’s a journey as a martial artist.
“There’s a path that each martial artist is on and different people are on different paths. There’s a reason why brown belts don’t compete with white belts in jiu-jitsu tournaments. It’s not fair, and what we saw tonight was not fair. Mickey Gall’s way better, he’s really good.
“This is what happens when you take a guy who’s an elite young kid [Gall] and you have him fight a celebrity who wants to challenge himself, it’s not the way to do it… If I had to give CM Punk advice, I’d say, fight as an amateur, fight people at your level. I mean, he wants to do this, he wants to continue, God bless him, he’s a fun guy, I like him. But this is not the way to do it.”
