The date and location for CM Punk’s next fight had been rumored for some time but no one would confirm it, until today. When UFC announced that they would be headed back to Chicago this year, it seemed logical that they would want Punk on that show. Well, it looks like it’s confirmed.
Punk responded to this tweet from a fan: “When are we gonna see you cry again in the octagon?” Punk said, “June nine, after I win and lock eyes with my beautiful wife, embrace my coaches and shout out my entire team.”
June 9 is the date for UFC 225. That show will also feature a light heavyweight fight between Rashad Evans and Anthony Smith.

This would be Punk’s second fight. The first one, back in September 2016, was a loss to Mickey Gall. There’s no word on who his opponent will be at UFC 225.
Punk is focused on fighting for now but there are rumors that he will return to wrestling later this year. Click here for more on that.
