CM Punk vs. Joe Rogan – who would win in real life?

Friday, April 06, 2018

We all saw how CM Punk’s first UFC fight went versus opponent, Mickey Gall, but how would he do in a hypothetical fight against longtime UFC commentator, Joe Rogan?

In this simulation match from the video game EA UFC 2, we see how it might go down if these two guys were to ever square off in real life, and you may be surprised with how it ends.

While CM Punk definitely deserves some credit for his bravery for his first ever MMA fight being in the UFC, he is simply just not UFC level and doesn’t really have any sort of combat sports background of any kind and no, professional wrestling doesn’t count.

Joe Rogan, on the other hand, has black belts in BJJ both in the gi under Jean Jaques Machado as well as in no-gi under his pal Eddie Bravo’s 10th planet system. Plus, not only that, he is a decorated Taekwondo black belt and champion and we have all seen just how powerful his kicks are in various YouTube videos, etc.

Joe Rogan, even at 50-years-old, would most likely mop the floor with CM Punk as he is a lifelong martial artist with solid backgrounds in both striking and grappling.

Check out the simulation match from EA UFC 2 below to see how it ends.
