UFC 225: Dana White Says CM Punk “Should Call it a Wrap” After One Sided Defeat
By FCF Staff
CM Punk’s second pro bout lasted much, much longer than his first, but following the former pro-wrestling star’s loss at UFC 225, it seems clear his run with the promotion is done.
Punk (Phil Brooks) took on Mike Jackson at the Chicago event, and dropped a one sided, decision loss to the welterweight. After the event, White was asked to weigh-in on Punk’s UFC future, and he said the following (quote via MMA Fighting):
“Listen, he got clipped a lot in that fight, and it looked like he was hurt bad a couple of times. He stayed in there, he went for three rounds,” White said at Sunday’s UFC 225 post-fight press conference.
“It should be a wrap. The guy’s 39 years old. I love the guy. He’s the nicest guy in the world. We gave him two shots, and he had a lot of heart tonight in this fight, and yeah, I think he should call it a wrap.”
Punk made his MMA debut at UFC 203 in September, 2016, and was quickly submitted by Mickey Gall.
