CM Punk's Potential UFC Opponent, Shelton Benjamin Finds A Gun

CM Punk's Potential UFC Opponent, Shelton Benjamin Finds A Gun”

MMAFghting.com reports that UFC officials are now discussing the idea of having CM Punk face Mike Jackson at UFC 225 in Chicago on June 9, but the fight hasn't been confirmed yet.

CM Punk and Mike Jackson share two glaring similarities.

CM Punk tweeted Saturday after the UFC announced that UFC 225 will be held in Chicago on June 9.

However, according to Ariel Helwani writing for MMA Fighting, it appears as though the UFC have found a second opponent for Punk, Mike Jackson.

Punk quit WWE around the 2014 Royal Rumble, an event in which he entered No1 and lasted over 49 minutes before he was eliminated by Kane. Despite being scheduled to appear on RAW the following night, Punk never showed up, and made a decision to leave the company. Both competitors are (0-1) in UFC fights. Unfortunately, Punk tapped out via a rear naked choke 2:14 in the first round.

"He probably shouldn't have his next fight in the UFC".

"I like that guy. This is a tough place to learn". I like the guy.

While Lesnar is still under contract to WWE now, UFC president Dana White admits that he could still see a scenario where the hulking heavyweight makes his return to action during 2018.

"He wants to give it another shot". Punk has continued to train at Roufusport in Milwaukee in hopes of getting another fight ever since his loss to Gall, and has been campaigning pretty hard with UFC to do so. I'm going to give it to him.

Jackson's record is virtually identical to Punk, having also suffered a submission loss to Gall; his coming after just 45 seconds of the first round.

Of the 13 PPVs UFC had in 2016, UFC 203 earned the second-highest buyrate for an event without either Conor McGregor or Ronda Rousey.
