CM Punk claims he will return to the Octagon at UFC 225 in Chicago

Former WWE superstar CM Punk has Tweeted that he will be having his second UFC fight in his hometown of Chicago on 9th June at UFC 225.

Punk, real name Phil Brooks, has not fought since September 2016 at UFC 203 where he was submitted in 2:14 in the first round by Micky Gall.

He replied to an online troll, who asked:  “When are we gonna see you cry again in the octagon?” with this Tweet.


Since that loss, he has remained dedicated to his MMA training and has been training at Roufusport in Milwaukee with the likes of UFC champion Tyron Woodley, former ONE Championship titleholder Ben Askren and former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis.


UFC has not officially announced that CM Punk will be on the card for the pay-per-view event at the United Center in Chicago on June 9th and at this stage, there is no indication on who he will be fighting against.


The latest UFC 225 fight card includes:

  • Carla Esparza vs. Claudia Gadelha
  • Joseph Benavidez vs. Sergio Pettis
  • Curtis Blaydes vs. Alistair Overeem
  • Rashad Evans vs. Anthony Smith
  • Rashad Coulter vs. Allen Crowder

    It was either Chael Sonnen or Joe Rogan who talked about it. Either way, he fucked himself going pro right away

    Hey. Dude got his ass beat in front of millions. He went back to train and now wants to risk it again. Say what you want but that takes big balls. Bigger than most that will talk shit about him.
