Joe Rogan on Punk’s UFC 225 Performance: “He Doesn’t Have Talent”
As we have seen in CM Punk’s first UFC fight as well as last Saturday night’s UFC 225 bout against Mike Jackson, UFC commentator Joe Rogan isn’t at all impressed with CM Punk’s performance. Rogan spoke about Punk during a recent episode of his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, touching on his belief that Punk doesn’t belong in the Octagon.
Below is what Joe Rogan said:
“The whole thing was very weird.” Like, right away, when you see CM Punk holding his hands up and moving stiff and throwing kicks, [I’m like], ‘oh Jesus.’ Like, I don’t like that being on pay-per-view. I understand that they are selling pay-per-view cards, but pay-per-view in the UFC should be the elite fighters.”
Rogan continued by explaining why he thinks the fight between Alistair Overeem and Curtis Blaydes should have been on the main pay-per-view card instead of the Punk-Jackson fight, which featured two fighters with 0-1 professional MMA records, as seen below:
“It’s like you took a dude [with] no wrestling background, no nothing, and you go, ‘alright, this is what I want you to do. This is a jab. This is a right hand. When you throw a kick, I want you to pivot your hips. Go in there and spar. I mean, he just doesn’t have the ability to move his body right.” “There’s a lot of guys that you could take out there—track and field guys, or football players, and you could get them to fight better than him in a couple of weeks. Easily. Because they’re athletes. They’re athletes. They would understand how to shift their weight, [and] throw a punch… he doesn’t have any talent. That’s all it is. He just doesn’t have any physical talent. For whatever reason. Whether it’s his approach, his intensity. It’s not his coaching. He’s with Duke f*ckin Roufus.”
