Punk lost via UD (30-26 x 3) and he was lucky to last the whole three rounds. Punk was respectable in the first few minutes, but it was clear after that he has no business in the UFC. After numerous missed punches and several clues he was exhausted, Punk spent most of the fight on the ground being punched.
Maybe the once great WWE wrestler will consider lasting a full fight a step in the direction, but anyone who watched the fight, or is about to watch the highlights will know … this must be the end.
As for what should be next: WWE? NJPW? IMPACT?
