It’s hard to watch the CM Punk versus Mickey Gall fight from UFC 203 and call it anything other than a one-sided beatdown that would end the same way 99 times out of 100. Punk didn’t get one bit of offense off before Gall speared him onto the canvas, hit him with some ugly ground and pound, and choked him out in just over two minutes.
The internet had a lot of fun making fun of CM Punk for daring to believe, but one man that tipped his hat to Punk (while dissing all of Punk’s former colleagues) was none other than Conor McGregor.
“Fair play to him because he got in there and fought,” McGregor told TMZ on the way into a nightclub after the event. “Not a lot of people do. Not a lot of people have the balls to make that walk. So fair play. He got his ass whupped. God bless, but he got his ass whupped. But those WWE guys are straight p*ssies, I tolds you all. But he isn’t. He got in there and fought. So fair play to him, respect.”
