Conor McGregor: CM Punk looks 'afraid' to be in UFC like he 'signed up for something he didn't want'

"CM Punk? I don't know. Listening to him speak, when I heard the broadcast announcement I saw a man afraid. Like he signed up for something he didn't want to be. When the shin bone cracks the body or the elbow cracks or the heel cracks... It doesn't get much more real than that. Personally, I don't think he should be in this league just yet, but again, you bring asses to the seats, you bring eyeballs to the screen and we will give you a shot."

Top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight contender and UFC Fight Night 59 headliner Conor McGregor (via Severe MMA), who knows a thing or two about bringing asses to seats (says this guy), doesn't have a problem with the world's leading mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion signing former WWE superstar Phil Brooks, because he brings something to the table and based on that alone deserves a shot. "Notorious," however, is not convinced "CM Punk" is prepared for the violence that awaits him inside the cage in 2015 and "saw a man afraid" in this video. Don't be scared, homie.
