CM Punk Reveals When He'll Be Fighting Next

Coach Duke Roufus has kept fans up to date with Punk's training and says he has improved

It appears that former WWE Champion and current UFC welterweight fighter CM Punk is preparing for his next MMA bout. Eventually he committed to giving the 39-year-old another opportunity, and when the organization announced UFC 225 would takes place in Punk's backyard of Chicago, it seemed like a natural fit for his return. There is no indication as of now as to who CM Punk will be fighting but it will most likely be a fighter who is also finding his feet in the sport. It was painfully clear that Mickey Gall - who went on to beat another hopeful mainstream star in Sage Northcutt a few months later - was out of his league in 2016.

"June [9], after I win and lock eyes with my attractive wife, embrace my coaches and shout out my entire team", he answered. After the ECW experiment ended, Punk's career took off as he would win a total of five world championships, including a 434-day reign with the WWE Championship in 2011.

Punk has been rumored for that UFC 225 card for quite some time as the former professional wrestler hails from Chicago and has a huge fan base in his home city. He trains out of Roufusport in Milwaukee.

Jackson has been campaigning for the fight probably more than anyone and after seeing the tweet himself, he hints at potentially being the opponent. While having a hometown favourite with tremendous mainstream exposure on a UFC main card makes sense, the UFC has not yet confirmed that Punk will indeed be fighting at UFC 225.
