After roughly 2.5 years since leaving WWE and pro wrestling itself behind, it looks like CM Punk is finally set for his debut MMA fight against Mickey Gall at UFC 202 on August 20. Or, I should say, that's what's being reported right now. To be perfectly honest, my interest in seeing Punk fight has lessened over time as one delay after another, various reports that his training hasn't been going well and the fact that he's facing a 2-0 rookie. Based on what I've heard over time, it looks like more people wanna see Punk get his ass handed to him rather than to see him win as opinion regarding Punk has changed to a more negative stance as time's gone by. A lot of MMA fans and MMA fighters were, and still are, angry that Punk was signed by UFC despite having zero MMA experience or fights. From a business perspective, I get the reason why but I can also understand why fans and fighters feel put out due to seeing Punk get this sort of preferential treatment. I don't have high hopes for Punk's chances, though that's based more on instinct and guesswork than anything else. Though, now that I think about it, what else could the opinion be based on given that the man's a 37 year old MMA rookie, who'll be about 2 months shy of his 38th birthday when he fights, that's never been in an MMA fight in his life.
