No, CM Punk was starting from scratch. There is a pretty good 4 part reality show that the UFC released the last month called "The Evolution of Punk" where a camera crew followed him over the last 2 years of his training. It's very entertaining. He literally learned MMA from the ground up and is fighting a legit prospect in his first fight, on PPV. Dude has some balls.

RDA fight aside Cerrone is one of my favorite fighters to watch. Always brings it. Also like him at 170, seems to have more pop without that weight cut, and he still has the power as he has finished all 3 of his fights at 170.
He's the man. He would fight next week if they asked him... always ready to throw down.

Anyone that expected that to go any other way is just delusional.

This should be a lesson to all of the bar room tough guys out there, you can't kick anyone of their asses who compete at the highest level.
Credit to Punk for making the walk and chasing a dream.

I know Gall is mainly a grappler, but it woulda been nice to see him trade a bit before the takedown. I know dude trained with Roufus or whatever, but it woulda been more satisfying to see him get "knocked dead". #freedelta

P.S. Luls @ Overeem for whining about a tap that never happened.

Yeah, the fact that he went out there and actually stepped in the ring I have to give him a ton of credit. But he never had a chance... also, Gall's entrance song was so perfect.

Trying to find a gif of Punk's swing and miss at the start of the fight.

Not sure that can even be classified as a swing, more of a wave.

I'll credit him for trying, but it's a real show of disrespect to those that have been training in some discipline or another all their lives... or at least for more than a year and a half.

That's, of course, if he legitimately thought he was gonna win, which I don't think he did.

Rogan immediately calling out Overeem with slow motion replays from 2 different angles was classic.

Not as good night for CM Punk. It was pretty funny that his former employers took a subtle jab at him too. But much props for getting in there and he still goes home to AJ Lee, so there's that.
