Undefeated Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight up-and-comer Mickey Gall (4-0) has mastered mixed martial arts (MMA) math, to the extent that he was able to crown himself UFC heavyweight champion.
Well, Gall defeated pro wrestling import CM Punk at UFC 203. When he was still employed by WWE, Punk — real name Phil Brooks — pinned Seth Rollins on Monday Night RAW.
Rollins stripped the strap from Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 31, Lesnar topped Mark Hunt at UFC 200, the “Super Samoan” jaw-jacked Stefan Struve at UFC on FUEL TV 8, and “Skyscraper” planished current UFC champion Stipe Miocic at UFC on FUEL TV 5.
Therefore, Gall > Miocic.
Sure, Lesnar was never actually pinned by Rollins — winning the title by nefarious means at WrestleMania 31 — and Lesnar’s win over Hunt was changed to a No Contest in the wake of a failed drug test, but we shouldn’t let silly little things like facts get in the way of self promotion.
How else could an ordinary fighter like Chael Sonnen win the middleweight title?
