WWE stars react to CM Punk’s loss at UFC 203

Former WWE star CM Punk only made it two minutes and 14 seconds into his UFC debut Saturday night in Cleveland, tapping out to Mickey Gall after taking some brutal shots to the head. It was a result many expected given Punk’s inexperience and background, but to Punk’s credit he vowed to come back in the octagon and not give up on his dream. Punk, who exited WWE very unceremoniously in 2014, walked to the octagon to his last pro wrestling theme song (Cult of Personality).

A few current and former WWE stars watching the fight were excited to see Punk’s debut, and many saluted his courage after being demolished by Gall.

Go get 'em, champ! #ufc203
