We all saw Mike Jackson beat the brakes off of CM Punk at UFC 225. The common consensus after the fight was that Jackson did what he had to do and Punk should find another line of work. A lot of people feel that ‘Hey, at least he’s trying’, which is admirable. However, Jackson dished out such a one-sided beating on Punk that he’s receiving criticism for it. Personally, I don’t understand why.
Jackson achieved what he set out to do and that should have been the end of it. It was not. He received the ire of Dana White and fans who felt he showboated and didn’t finish when he could have. He beat Punk from pillar to post and ended his dream of being a fighter. What else is the guy supposed to do?
