UFC: Dana White gives reason why CM Punk vs Michael Jackson is on UFC 225 main-card

Last week it was revealed that Alistair Overeem‘s fight with Curtis Blaydes was bumped down to the under-card to make way for CM Punk vs Michael Jackson.

The UFC faced a lot of criticism for their decision, with UFC commentator Joe Rogan being the loudest.

“It shouldn’t even be on the ‘Tuesday Night Contender’ show.

It should be in some amateur event somewhere,” Rogan said

“That’s really what they are. They’re guys learning how to compete. They’re in the first fight on the pay-per-view. That’s f–king crazy.”

Dana White, however had a blunt reply to all the haters.

When Alistair Overeem sells as many pay-per-views as CM Punk does, we can argue. – Dana White

Alistair Overeem, a MMA legend and a veteran with 13 UFC fights could have felt hard done by – but he has shrugged off the decision in his usual style.

UFC 225 goes to floors on June 9, 2018 at the United Center at Chicago, Illinois.

The card is headlined by a middleweight title rematch between Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero. The card also co-features an interim welterweight title bout between Colby Covington and former lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos.
