CM Punk lost his UFC (and MMA) debut Saturday night at UFC 203. Despite his positive attitude following the defeat, he clearly took the result hard.

"I lost and it sucks," Punk said at the post fight press conference. "It was lopsided. It is upsetting. I know I am better than that."

Punk had two stitches above his right eye and tape around his ear following his first round submission loss to Mickey Gall. At the UFC 203 post-fight press conference, he was clearly dejected, at times fighting back tears. He said he felt like he let people down.

"I wanted to win," Punk said. "I wanted to perform. It didn't happen."

Punk said he hopes to return to the Octagon. He said he would like to return as soon as possible.

"I'd be back in there Monday if it were up to me," Punk said.
