Joe Rogan: CM Punk lacks ‘physical talent’ as MMA fighter
Joe Rogan doesn’t think there’s any coincidence that CM Punk has been throttled in his two MMA fights.
Rogan, who served as a longtime UFC color commentator/analyst, spoke about CM Punk during his podcast this week. Rogan said that Punk “does not have athletic talent.”
“He’s a very nice guy and he’s a hard worker, but he does not have athletic talent,” Rogan said on “The Joe Rogan Experience.” “He’s missing… he’s a showman, and when he was in the WWE, he was allowed to say, ‘I am the f—ing 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.”
Punk made his name as a famous wrestler in the WWE. But he left the organization and signed with the UFC in late 2014. His first fight came two years later, and then he fought again over the weekend. He got crushed in both fights and ended up making a trip to the hospital after his loss Saturday.
“He doesn’t have the ability to move his body right,” said Rogan. “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.
“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.”
UFC president Dana White said after the loss that Punk should give up his MMA career.
