After CM Punk got finished by Mickey Gall in a little over two minutes at UFC 203 on Saturday night in Cleveland, Ohio, there were numerous “I told you so” comments being tossed around. Many people made fun of Punk for thinking he could step into the Octagon and compete.
UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor knows that Punk didn’t have much to offer Gall by way of putting up a fight, but still has respect for the 37-year-old former WWE champion.
McGregor has had some choice words for the WWE guys, but in this quick clip from TMZ Sports, he didn’t count Punk amongst the rest of the WWE crop.

“I’ll tell you what, fair play to him because he got in there and fought, and not a lot of people do. Not a lot of people have the balls to make that walk, so fair play,” said McGregor. “Those WWE guys are straight (expletive), I told you all, but he isn’t. He got in and fought, so fair play to him. Respect.”
