    He's a decent MMA fighter, just not on the level that is expected in the UFC.
    The only reason he's fighting in UFC is because off his fame as a wrestler.

    Dude. He's at a lower level than a bar room brawler or a highschool kid. That was a truly pathetic display

    He never had much of a career in the sport to begin with.

    White says he's gone from UFC. So long for the MMA career for Mr Brooks.

    4 years training and he looks so bad. Honestly don't understand how he he can look like a guy who has no idea what he is doing.

    I dunno where CM punk goes from here. Don't think New Japan pro wrestling is an option. New Japan will have a hell of a job building him up as a credible championship contender. All of his credibility totally gone

    If anything, Jackson comes out of this with even less credibility than Punk: Jackson -- a fighter who is supposed to have some Muay Thai and Kickboxing experience -- couldn't knock down or get the finish against an opponent who was, for all intents and purposes, a famous UFC fan competing on a UFC PPV.

    Jack supposedly had some amateur boxing experience as well. I can see it a little I guess.... Looked like he held back a bit tbh. Some have suggested he bet on himself winning by decision.

    Yeah Jackson looked terrible. Punk looked like a guy UFC pulled out the crowd and said let's see how you get on.

    We even surmised during the RBR -- only half-jokingly -- that Dana pulled Jackson to one side at some point during the build-up and essentially requested that Jackson carry Punk the distance. That really is how it looked at the time. :lol:

    That's exactly how it looked and seemed! :eek:

    And UFC did it not once, but twice with CM Punk. At least Tommy Morrison only did it that one time. :lol:

    Really shows how arrogant the bloke is I suppose. He's been training 4 years fulltime at a high quality camp with great training partners and no expense given and that is his skill level ? He is pathetic both stand up and ground work. Surely he is self aware enough to have known this ? Maybe he is one of those people who have no self awareness. I don't want anyone to say "gee he has heart" etc etc. He was paid millions for those 2 ufc fights and he produced garbage. Honestly I wouldn't be shocked if some men on mma boards who are young and train regularly/for fun etc etc could possibly beat him he was that bad.
