TMZ Sports caught up with Dana White in New York City on Thursday and he had some news to share about CM Punk.
It’s been rumored for months but it’s now confirmed that Punk’s next fight will be against Mike “The Truth” Jackson. Both Punk and Jackson previously lost fights to Mickey Gall.
White also indicated that Brock Lesnar’s next UFC fight could hinge on whoever wins the Stipe Miocic vs. Daniel Cormier fight.
As noted on Wednesday night, the belief is that Lesnar will finish up with WWE on Sunday night at WrestleMania and he is close to signing a deal to fight in the Octagon. Everyone in WWE is under the impression that Lesnar is done after Sunday night so you that pretty much spoils (or does it really since we’ve known for months that Reigns is going over) the match for some fans.
