CM Punk’s UFC return continues to develop. Ariel Helwani noted that there is talk of Punk taking on Mike Jackson at UFC 225. It would comes from Punk’s hometown of Chicago and help with ticket sales.
In his lone MMA fight, Punk was submitted by Mickey Gail in under three minutes. The one-sided fight was back in September 2016. Jackson is 0-1 in the UFC, with his loss also coming from Gail. That fight didn’t even last one minute.
UFC 225 is June 9 from the United Center and discussions on the fight continue.
