All in all, the card definitely was a little underwhelming. CM Punk was disappointing in his debut, lasting just over two minutes to Mickey Gall, who only had two fights under his belt in his career. Many believed Overeem (41-15, 6-4 UFC) would be a challenge to defending champion Miocic (16-2, 10-2), but that simply wasn’t the case. Fans who bought UFC tickets or the PPV may have felt ripped off, since two of the more hyped up events didn’t make it through the first round. It will be interesting to see how Overeem comes back after this disappointing loss, as well as how CM Punk handles his next fight after quickly learning the octagon is nothing like the ring.
