Joe Rogan’s not a fan of CM Punk’s ludicrously high stats in new UFC video game

Hopeful rating

The developers of EA Sports UFC 2 have the inside track on MMA newbie CM Punk’s ability… he’s going to be a world beater on the ground.

CM Pujnk submission

There was uproar among the MMA-gaming community recently as an image began to do the rounds showing the stats of 0-0 CM Punk in the upcoming UFC video game.

The picture showed a side-by-side comparison of the former WWE star’s ratings with former welterweight and lightweight champion BJ Penn. The majority of people seemed to take issue with Punk’s submission rating, which was one point higher than Penn’s, who is a actual three-time World Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Championship medalist.

UFC colour commentator Joe Rogan perfectly summed up everyone’s thoughts on the matter, or at least everyone who isn’t willing to look past that we’re talking about virtual likenesses here.

EA Sports UFC 2 is set for release worldwide release on March 17.
