CM Punk Claims He's Returning at UFC 225 in Chicago

CM Punk Claims He's Returning at UFC 225 in Chicago”

Former WWE superstar CM Punk appears to be ready for his second UFC fight.

In his trademark sarcastic way, Punk confirmed the fight by tweeting a response to someone who asked him if he plans to cry after this trip into The Octagon. He made his MMA debut at UFC 203 18 months ago, and it did not go well. He's been a constant presence at the Roufusport camp in Milwaukee, Wis., training alongside the likes of UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, former lightweight champ Anthony Pettis, former ONE Championship titleholder Ben Askren and other notables.

After a standout career as a professional wrestler, Punk made his debut with the Las Vegas-based promotion at UFC 203, where he was soundly defeated by Mickey Gall via first-round submission on September 10, 2016. That just so happens to be the date of UFC 225 in Punk's home town of Chicago.

"I will be back", Punk said in his post-fight interview with UFC commentator Joe Rogan back in 2016. He quickly lost to Mickey Gall via submission in the first round.

Punk originally teased he'd be competing on the Chicago card back in early February, retweeting the poster of the event along with an "eyes" and "thinking" emoji. "He's healthy now and interested in fighting".

White, for the record, has yet to comment on Punk's latest statement.

All signs seem to point towards a matchup with Mike "The Truth" Jackson, who was originally vying for a shot at Punk in his UFC debut back in 2016.
