Finally, he submitted to the rare naked choke and that was it. He submitted at 2.14 minutes of the very first round. Punk had received a lot of criticism from fellow UFC fighters because Punk didn’t had a MMA background or in any way related to the octagon.

It is quite difficult to say what’s next for CM Punk because of the brutal beat down which he suffered from the hands of Mickey Gall at UFC 203. Reports state that Dana White has started doubting CM Punk. Though Punk said that he would be back for another fight but he is of 37 years old and is fighting against old veterans and young wolves. It was very brave of him to step into the Octagon but will he able to defeat the best fighters of MMA? It still remains a big question.
