Jack Gallagher and CM Punk may not be the best of friends, especially when he threw some shade in his direction when Dana White was in the process of setting up Punk’s second UFC fight. When it was revealed Punk did not have an opponent for his second fight, Gallagher mentioned he had “two minutes to spare”. Auwtch!

5. He’s Married to Clara Sinclare

Gallagher has been officially off the market since 2017 when he married independent wrestler Clare Sinclare, also known under her ring name Alexis Rose. There adorable! Exactly the kind of people I’d invite to my themed Halloween party. You’re always welcome guys!
