CM Punk Continues To Be Criticised Amid Reports He Is Struggling With MMA Transition
CM Punk continues to be lambasted by fellow UFC fighters, as reports suggest his MMA progression is going poorly.
Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that there are rumours surfacing that CM Punk's transition to MMA isn't going to plan, while his body continues to go through rehab on an old back injury.
It also comes off the back of fresh criticism for the former pro-wrestler, as UFC welterweight Matt Brown spoke about his transition from pro-wrestling to MMA. The veteran of over thirty professional fights didn't hold back.
Speaking to The Fan Garage; "I didn't criticize him for having his surgery if it was something necessary to do. I criticized him for the fact that he's not a fighter. He doesn't deserve to fight in the UFC with no fights.
Brown continues by saying having made a name in the WWE shouldn't warrant a spot in the premier MMA organization.
"I don't believe he deserves to fight in the UFC based off the name he made in pro-wrestling and I think he'll figure it out when he fights in the UFC, he'll figure it out the hard way. Or he can listen to me and that'll be the easy way to learn."
Brown fought last weekend at UFC 198 where he was comprehensively beaten by Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace Demian Maia, ultimately succumbing to a third round submission.
