CM Punk showed a ton of heart in his second, MMA bout tonight at UFC 225, but as many expected would be the case, he was outclassed by Mike Jackson.
Punk landed a couple of hard rights early on, but other than that, Jackson dominated nearly all he action. The welterweight outscored Punk in the striking exchanges, and when the latter dropped to guard, Jackson punished him with punches from above.
After the final horn, there was no question that Jackson would be awarded the decision win. Punk did not do a post-fight, in-cage interview to discuss his future in fighting.
Here are the results so far for UFC 225, which is going down in Chicago, Illinois.
