Daniel Bryan got engaged in a Twitter battle against a UFC superstar recently. He is none other than the opponent of CM Punk’s second UFC fight. We do know that Punk lost the second battle to a Mike Jackson at UFC 225. It was another disastrous outing for the former WWE Champion inside the Octagon.
If the rumours are true, then his career at the UFC is over. Even the president of the promotion stated the same in the post-match conference. The fans and critics started trolling Punk on the social media for this loss. WWE commentator took some nasty shots to the former Straight Edge Leader.
It looks like Daniel Bryan has also joined the league. He did not take a shot to his former colleague. Instead, he promised to defeat Mike Jackson if they share the same ring any day. The Bella Family was having a Q&A session on Instagram. Instead of answering the fans’ questions, he started asking himself a question of whether he can beat Jackson.

The current Smackdown roster member asserted he could defeat Jackson on any given day. Here are the quotes, (courtesy Pro Wrestling Sheet),
“Did they just ask me if I could beat Mike Jackson in a fight?”
“I could beat him on the ground, for sure … I think”.
Nikki Bella was in the background of this video. She asked her brother-in-law to prove it when Daniel Bryan stated, “If WWE were to let me fight in the UFC, then maybe.”

The UFC fighter was not happy after hearing these comments on the social media. He responded to it by giving a quote to fansided.com. Jackson vowed to make Bryan’s condition worse than even Punk,
“Look Daniel Bryan; I will do you worse than I did your man Punk because I will have no reservations in punching this guy in the face 100-per cent. And at will.”

Some of the fans might have thought that Daniel Bryan was joking, but that’s not the case. When WWE kept him away from in-ring competition, he continued training in MMA wrestling. UFC Fighter Benson Henderson once revealed that he was quite impressive.
But that does not mean we can see this fight happening. Daniel Bryan is under the contract of WWE.
There’s no way that the company will let him go into the Octagon for a fight. There’s already an injury-scare with Bryan with the neck concussion.
