On Monday’s episode of the ratio show, Chad Dukes Versus The World,” UFC Light Heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, gave his opinion on the UFC’s signing of former WWE superstar CM Punk.
Jones let it be known that he not only thought Punk was undeserving of being signing, due to the fact that other up-and-comers are being passed up, but also wants to see Punk get knocked out.
Here’s what the champ had to say:
“I just think it’s unfair for the people who have been working their tails off to earn this opportunity. That’s why I really hope UFC gives him a real opponent so we can watch him get knocked out.
Every day I’m at the gym watching these kids training. These guys have no money and they’re training their tails off, giving up everything to be a fighter. Living in the gym, eating turkey and peanut butter, bare minimum to chase this dream and then a superstar like him just gets to jump into the UFC just because he knows the right people and has a name.
It’s gonna bring a lot of publicity. I went to my first WWE match this year and the enthusiasm and emotion on the fans faces, it was like they were watching real fighting in the UFC. I do have a respect for the influence of the WWE and the passion of the fans.”
