• CM Punk’s Next UFC Opponent Asked If He Was Chosen So That Punk Could Win

During a recent interview with TMZ Sports, CM Punk’s next UFC opponent Mike Jackson addressed their fight scheduled on June 9th for UFC 225 and commented on if he thinks he was picked so that CM Punk could get a win.

Below is what Jackson said:

“No, I think I was picked just because of who I am and the storyline and the ability to sell a fight. I don’t think they have anything invested in his winning or losing to be honest with you. It was just a fight that made sense. If you bring in someone else… it’s going to get buzz but it’s not going to get like this type of buzz and it’s getting this type of buzz because it’s me. I was the guy from jump but you have to have a dope storyline and this is a storyline that even Vince McMahon couldn’t write.”

It should be noted that both Punk & Jackson’s MMA record are 0-1 and their losses came from the same fighter, Mickey Gall.
