UFC has a date, location and opponent in mind for CM Punk’s next fight



It’s looking more likely that we’ll see CM Punk fighting in the Octagon again. Ariel Helwani of MMA Fighting is reporting that UFC is in talks to book Punk vs. Mike Jackson at UFC 225 in Chicago. That show will take place in June of this year.

By the time of the fight, Punk would be nearly two years removed from his loss to Mickey Gall at UFC 203, his debut fight. Punk did not land a strike and was dominated just seconds into the fight. That led to questions about his future with UFC. Punk indicated that he wanted to fight again but Dana White wasn’t so sure until he changed his tune in recent months.

Jackson, Punk’s potential opponent, is 0-1 in MMA. Jackson’s first and only MMA loss was to Gall. Punk has continued to train at Roufusport in Milwaukee.

Cody Rhodes addresses speculation on CM Punk being involved with All In

“He can’t go in there and fight dudes with a lot of experience, as opposed to bringing in someone else with very limited MMA experience,” Jackson told MMAJunkie.com. “It only makes sense to put us both in there.”
