CM Punk took to social media over the weekend to comment on the unfortunate conclusion to the main event of the UFC Fight Night event that featured Leon "Rocky" Edwards making his long-awaited Octagon return against short-notice opponent Belal Muhammad.

The fight saw Edwards accidentally poke Muhammad in the eye twice, with the second foul being so bad that the UFC welterweight contender could not continue, resulting in the bout being declared a "No Contest."

Heading into the fight, Punk commented about his former teammate, writing, "Let's go Belal Muhammad! #RememberTheName."

After the unfortunate ending to the bout, the pro wrestling veteran wrote, "This is heartbreaking. Love you, Belal Muhammad. Keep your head up. Recover and run it back. You're a warrior. #RememberTheName."
