Jackson says that he is going into the fight looking to end Punk's MMA career.
"I'm not going in here to hurt him," Jackson said. "I'm just going in here to beat him up a little bit and show him that this is not for him."
Punk and Jackson are both going into the fight with MMA records of 0 wins and 1 loss. When asked if he was chosen by the UFC to fight
