CM Punk & His Opponent’s UFC Career Over – Dana White Angry At Mike Jackson For Not Finishing Off CM Punk

CM Punk UFC Career Over

During the UFC 225 post-fight press conference, UFC President Dana White noted that this is it for CM Punk in the UFC. But that’s not it.

Along with Punk, his victorious UFC 225 opponent Mike Jackson’s UFC career is over as well, according to Dana White.

Below is what Dana said:

“No, it should be a wrap. The guy (CM Punk) is 39 years old. We gave him two shots, and he had a lot of heart tonight, and I think he should call it a wrap.

Punk got clipped a lot in that fight, and it looked like he was hurt. Mike Jackson I’m not happy with. This guy was acting like a goofball tonight. You get this opportunity to fight CM Punk, and you’re doing, like, bolo punches to the body on top. Never looked like he was trying to finish the fight ever. Looked like he could have finished the fight a few times. Never tried.

I don’t know what that guy did for a living before we gave him the shot, but whatever it was, he needs to go back and do that again. He’s 0-2 as far as I’m concerned.

I got the sense that he’s a complete f***ing idiot, and I couldn’t wait for that fight to end, and I regretted not putting that fight on Fight Pass. That’s how I felt about that fight.

That’s it for his (Mike Jackson) UFC career. I wouldn’t put that kid in the Contender Series.”

Below is what Mike tweeted after listening to Dana’s comments:
