Chael Sonnen has finally given his take on the CM Punk – Mike Jackson fight. Punk and Jackson faced off back at UFC 225 with Jackson emerging as the winner via unanimous decision. Though people praised the heart of both the fighters, they were critical of the skillset that Punk and Jackson showcased.

Sonnen touched upon just the latest episode of his podcast.

“I appreciated that match. I think that Mike Jackson deserves some credit. Look, he’s not very good. People seem to be making that the focal point. I feel that they’re just missing the story that two guys had a dream, two guys were given the opportunity, and two guys got matched up, and we do have to admit very well that that was the right skill vs. the right skill, the right experience vs. the right experience. I thought that CM Punk showed a lot of heart, I don’t think you guys would disagree with me. As far as a ton of skill, he’s only done it one time. Going into the fight, he’s only done it one time, now he’s only done it two times. What the hell do you want from the guy?,” he said.

The former UFC star also went on to admit that the quality of the fight was a bit low compared to UFC’s pay-per-view standards but once again praise both the fighters for their heart.
