Daniel Bryan kept a close eye on the latest MMA fight involving CM Punk.
The former WWE Champion fought Mike Jackson in a welterweight bout at the UFC 225 pay-per-view event on Saturday, June 9, 2018, at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
As seen in the fight, Jackson dominated it and although Punk showed a ton of heart he was winded after the first round. Jackson was able to pick up the unanimous decision win after a dominant performance.
Bryan made it well known during Brie Bella’s live Instagram video that was recently posted on the social media platform that he’s willing to fight Jackson, who holds a pro-MMA record of 1-1.
Bryan stated in the video, “I could beat him on the ground for sure. If WWE would let me fight in UFC, maybe.”
It should be noted that Bryan has had an interest in MMA and has been training in the sport for years. His history with MMA goes back to the days of training at Xtreme Couture as well as at the MMA Lab in Glendale Arizona with former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson.
Bryan is slated to take on Big Cass in a singles match at the upcoming WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view event on Sunday, June 17, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois at the Allstate Arena.
