There were only two ways this fight could go. Either CM Punk was going to redeem himself and shame Mike Jackson for the rest of his days. Or Punk was going to lose his second MMA fight, drop to 0-2 and be ostracized from the sport for-ev-ver.
In front of his hometown of Chicago, CM Punk was going to get some kind of Hollywood ending no matter the outcome.
Then the first round began and Punk made it out of the round but looked like garbage in the process. Jackson pieced him up on the feet as the former WWE wrestler aged before our very eyes.
The 39-year-old showed heart but was clearly outclassed over the course of three rounds by Jackson. The Truth basically coasted and Punk slowly folded. Props for the heart but you did just get paid a truckload of cash to hop the line in MMA right into the UFC.
