Cole Miller doesn’t just think CM Punk will be adequate as a UFC fighter, he thinks the former WWE star will be a winner.
“I think he’ll do very well,” Miller said. “I don’t think he’s trying to make a 10-year career out of this. But he’s going to shake things up, whoop some ass and prove a lot of people wrong. I expect him to do very well against whoever they put up against him.”
“I think most MMA fighters don’t have any kind of ground,” Miller said. “Most of them aren’t good at all. Even in the UFC. There are plenty of exceptions, but when I say most, I mean more than 50 percent are nothing more than OK blue belts on the ground. I would rate CM Punk definitely above that.”
“This guy has the perseverance it takes. He’s been through the fire. Most people are gonna break training for their first MMA fight and realize they don’t have to. This guy has been through the gauntlet, so to speak.”
