– UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping has chimed in on CM Punk’s UFC debut. Unlike others, who Bisping said wanted to see Punk lose, Bisping took the side of respect for Punk “having the balls” to step into the cage…

“I never saw the fight, because I was in England, and I didn’t want to stay up until 5AM to watch it. I read the reports and I know how it went down. I’ve got to say, I respect CM Punk. I respect anyone that’s got the balls to step in there and fight, especially with everybody wanting him to lose. Every fighter in the sport wanted him to lose, they really did. He was in a terrible position, under immense pressure, and unfortunately for him, my fears about how the fight would likely go were correct. That’s an incredibly hard place to start your MMA career; in the UFC, on the main card of a PPV…that’s a tough ask for anybody.”
