CM Punk says he's returning to the Octagon at UFC 225

CM Punk says he's returning to the Octagon at UFC 225

Almost 21 months to the day that Punk first set foot in The Octagon, the former World Wrestling Entertainment superstar will make his return to mixed martial arts in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois, for the UFC 225 event on June 9.

Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for further information regarding Punk's fight on June 9th.

An MMA fan asked CM Punk on Twitter when will he fight/cry inside the octagon again. He took on the young and talented prospect, Mickey Gall and was unable to land a single punch in the two minutes and fourteen seconds that the fight lasted before Punk tapped out to a rear-naked-choke. His cross-over to mixed-martial-arts helped the UFC build a bigger fan base. 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.

The ongoing theory is that Punk's opponent will be Texas fight Mike "The Truth" Jackson (0-1), who lost to Gall back in February 2016.
