Where CM Punk went wrong in his MMA Career
Punk would make his debut against Mickey Gall, a fighter who was probably going to be in the UFC anyway just based off of skill alone. Punk would get taken down easily, beat to a pulp, and choked out and this all happened in the first round. You would think this would be the end for CM Punk and his UFC dreams but Nope. He would later on fight Mike Jackson who loss to Mickey Gall to fight Punk and as mediocre as Jackson is a fighter he blew threw Punk with ease. He played with CM Punk and put on a shit performance causing not only the crowd to boo but pissed Dana White off. Punk has since then hung up his gloves but their are rumors that he be planning another fight due to him sending numerous USADA drug tests.
The UFC obviously never learns their lesson with a situation like this especially when they could have made him a decent star. He came into the UFC as a known figure and a person who even though everybody knew how terrible he was even before he put on the gloves. The smart thing for the UFC to do was to put him in a lower league with lower opponents and associate it with UFC fight pass so that way subscribers go up, CM Punk fights guys at his level and still train like a UFC Fighter, and also bring in alot of money while he makes alot of money. The UFC completely dropped the ball with this one.
