CM Punk Teases Return to the Octagon at UFC 225 in Chicago

CM Punk Teases Return to the Octagon at UFC 225 in Chicago

After an unsuccessful mixed martial arts debut that lasted two minutes and 45 seconds, CM Punk also known as Phil Brooks, will have a chance at redemption as he is set for his second fight at UFC 225, in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois.

"June nine, after I win and lock eyes with my lovely wife, embrace my coaches and shout out my entire team", Punk responded when asked about the next time he will cry in the Octagon. Whittaker, who met Rosenberg at a previous Wrestlemania event, proposed to his girlfriend Thursday, with the help of CM Punk. 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 nine, after I win and lock eyes with my attractive wife, embrace my coaches and shout out my entire team", the ex-wrestler replied.

Punk (0-1-0) made his professional MMA debut well over a year ago at UFC 203, suffering a first round TKO loss to Mickey Gall. UFC President Dana White hinted that Punk could be cut but it appears Punk is going to get one more shot in June at UFC 225. He trains out of Roufusport in Milwaukee. 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.

It looks like CM Punk may have booked his next fight.

For those unaware, UFC 225 will take place at the United Center in Chicago. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass, though the full lineup ands bout order haven't been finalized.
