CM Punk I'm Fighting at UFC 225 ... & I'm Gonna Win!

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

Punk was clapping back at trolls on Twitter when he broke the news. responding to someone who asked, "When are we gonna see you cry again in the octagon?"

The announcement of the organization heading to his home city of Chicago for UFC 225 got the former WWE superstar excited back in February. The main card will air on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET while the preliminary card will air on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET and the promotion's streaming service, UFC Fight Pass.

Punk's debut fight didn't go as many of his fans hoped, as he was taken down by Gall early on and submitted to a rear naked choke. His cross-over to mixed-martial-arts helped the UFC build a bigger fan base.

June 9 is when UFC 225 is set to take place in Chicago, Punk's hometown.

Whilst Punk's opponent in the fight is yet to be officially announced, MMA Fighting did claim last month that negotiations were well underway for Punk to meet Mike Jackson.

Should Punk secure a win, talks about him fighting Floyd Mayweather Junior could gain momentum.

UFC hasn't confirmed CM Punk's return yet, but Punk himself actually let the cat out of the bag.

While it looked like it was a potential "one-and-done" MMA career for the 39-year-old, the Welterweight has now said he will returning to the Octagon for a second professional fight. That would certainly make a lot more sense for Mayweather as CM Punk is more or less on his level in terms of being an MMA fighter.
