CM Punk Says He Will Fight AT UFC 225
While nothing official has been announced by the UFC, it seems that CM Punk is set to return to the Octagon in his hometown.
When responding to a troll on Twitter of when he’d be returning to the Octagon, the notoriously outspoken Punk claimed that it would be when the UFC is in Chicago on June 9th.

There had been rumors that Punk would be facing off against Mike Jackson on the Pay Per View card taking place at the United Center, while Jackson may not have signed on the dotted line, the straight-edged wrestler turned mixed martial artist seems to be making his second entrance inside the Octagon.
Punk debuted at UFC 203 in September 2016, in a losing effort to Mickey Gall in the first round. Both Dana White and Punk left the door open for another fight in the UFC, as Punk continued to train at Roufusport in Milwaukee in hopes of getting another fight.
