As we wait to find out who CM Punk’s first opponent will be in the UFC Octagon, the Jason Ellis Show on Faction already has his second opponent picked out: Jason Ellis.
Tuesday, during an interview with Rashad Evans, CM Punk’s name came up. Ellis took the opportunity to talk some smack, and issue a challenge.
“I would totally fight him. I’m better than him,” Ellis said. “Stand-up, I’ll f-cking destroy him. … I think I’m better on the ground. My wrestling’s better because I’m from Team Quest. You’re not going to stop me. I can sprawl like everybody else. And my jiu-jitsu, it’s not a good idea for me to submit you, but I don’t make mistakes. I’ve got good fundamentals, I can get back up. If I get back up, you’re going to sleep for sure.”
Ellis promised that he’d deliver a show for the fans, too.
“I hit real hard, too. I’ve got heavy hands. Everybody says that,” Ellis said. “And I can take a punch, which means we can have a show. … I’m for the fans.”
“I don’t think his face can take it,” Ellis continued, referring to the two fighters’ stand-up. “I know my face can take it.”
Evans told Ellis he’d love to see it. We agree. Maybe CM Punk and Dana White will feel the same …
