'You are a coward' - Cathal Pendred and CM Punk have gone to war on Twitter

That escalated quickly.

FORMER WWE STAR CM Punk — real name Phil Brooks — is currently preparing to make his debut for the Ultimate Fighting Championship, despite never having competed in a mixed martial arts bout before.

Neither a date nor an opponent have been set for Brooks’ first UFC bout, but Irish welterweight Cathal Pendred has previously expressed his interest in welcoming the 36-year-old Chicago native to the octagon.

This evening on Twitter, the pair locked horns after Pendred– who faces Tom Breese at UFC Dublin on 24 October — tweeted a video of Brooks doing some padwork and said: “CM Punk on the pads making me look like Muhammad Ali.”

From there, things escalated quickly…

Some good digs from both sides in there, some not so good. Who took it on the scorecards?

Quiz: Can you identify who the opponent was from Conor McGregor’s hairstyle?
