Dana White Claims Punk’s UFC Career Is A “Wrap”
While CM Punk may want to take a mixed martial arts fight again, it will more than likely will not be in the UFC.
Following his unanimous decision loss at UFC 225, Punk’s record would fall to 0-2, and UFC President Dana White may think it is time to call it a day.
“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.”
Following his retirement from pro wrestling, Punk would sign with the UFC in the latter portion of 2014. Punk would then focus on training at Duk Rofus’ Roufusport gym for two years before his 2016 loss to Mickey Gall at UFC 203.
In his second outing, Punk would last all three rounds, but per FightMetric stats, Jackson outstruck Punk by a margin of 129 to 56.
Punk would be rushed to the hospital after the loss to Jackson, but MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani reported that he was discharged and had no serious injuries.
