Former WWE star CM Punk has confirmed that he will fight in the UFC for a second time

The former WWE superstar who now trains full time in mixed martial arts seemingly just confirmed his return to action on June 9 as part of the upcoming UFC 225 card in Chicago.

Dana White said in January that he was going to give Punk another shot, and his second career fight will happen in the flawless place. 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. In response to a trolling fan who asked when he would be back, the ex-WWE Superstar tweeted, "June nine, after I win and lock eyes with my attractive wife, embrace my coaches and shout out my entire team". 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. The fight ended in the first round, with Punk forced to tap to a rear-naked choke. And all evidence pointed to an appearance in his home town of Chicago, which the UFC will be visiting in June.

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

The crash was "in the dark of night, and we are down in a ravine next to a creek", Mack said, so "it was a large scale effort". Baldwin County Sheriff Hoss Mack confirmed the death, and Major Anthony Lowery said the bus ran off the highway.

Jackson has not fought since losing to Gall in February 2016, which was his only professional MMA fight to date.

Punk hasn't fought since UFC 203 back in September 2016 when he suffered a brutal submission loss in the 1st round to Gall.

Since the report of the fight came out a few weeks back, a tweet would then be put out there by Punk indicating that he is fighting at UFC 225, but an opponent was not mentioned.
