    “He’s a very nice guy and he’s a hard worker, but he does not have athletic talent,” said Joe. “He’s missing....he’s a showman, and when he was in the WWE, he was allowed to say, ‘I am the fucking man!’ And throw his hand up in the air and say he is the man, and they had it scripted so that he was the man. But when you’re in there with a guy like Mike Jackson, who had zero fear of him and was just so casual, popping him in the face anytime he wanted to, he literally could’ve stopped him anytime, if he got angry and wanted to stop him, he could’ve at any point in the fight.”

    Since Jackson opted to play with his food instead of eating it right away, his time inside the Octagon has also likely run out if UFC President Dana White has his way."

    “He doesn’t have the ability to move his body right. There’s a lot of guys you can take out there, track and field guys, football players and you can get them to fight better than him in a couple of weeks easily because they are athletes,” explained Joe.

    “They’d understand how to shift their weight and throw a punch. He doesn’t have any talent, is all it is, he doesn’t have physical talent for whatever reason. Whether it’s his approach, his intensity. It’s not his coaching, it’s Duke-fucking-Roufus.”

    Rogan and Smith's comment at the end of the fight was about the only thing good in this fight,

    when Mike Jackson sprawled on Punk,

    Rogan: "I mean I'd really like to see Mike separate, and try to finish the fight on his feet
    I think he has a good shot at doing that there, if going to a decision, it's the foregone conclusion"

    Smith: "I think he stays right here"

    Rogan: "yup you win"

    Smith: "where's my money?"

    Rogan: "you might be the only one who wins here"

    that first round was more competitive than I thought... in the live thread here, caught up in the passion of the moment, I scored it 10-6 Punk on the strength of the late takedown, but now I'm leaning 10-7 and perhaps even 10-8

    100000% agree with Rogan. Punk is a great guy but he was a heavy metal skateboarder with no athletic ability in his youth. Bet he cant make contact in a batting cage, dribble a basketball, hit a golf ball...nothing. It’s just not in his DNA.
