WATCH: Conor McGregor shows massive respect to CM Punk after UFC debut

Conor McGregor couldn’t resist a little laugh at former WWE Superstar CM Punk’s expense after the wrestler turned MMA fighter was beaten convincingly after just two minutes on his UFC debut.

“He got his ass whooped,” he laughed hours after the fight.

Video from TMZ Sports.

But despite the loss McGregor went on to say: “Fair play to him because he got in there and fought and not a lot of people do, not a lot of people have the balls to make that walk so fair play.”

The Dubliner also said: “Those WWE guys are straight pussies, I told you, but he isn’t, he got in and fought so fair play to him, respect.”
