CM Punk Continues To Hint About Fighting At UFC 225

CM Punk Continues To Hint About Fighting At UFC 225

On Monday, Punk took it to another level when responding to a fan on Twitter.

While no official announcement has been made, there have been reports that Punk may face off with Mike Jackson, who fell in his lone UFC fight back in 2016 in a bout that determined the first opponent to welcome the former WWE superstar to the Octagon.

If Punk does make his return at UFC 225, the show in Chicago would undoubtedly get a big boost from his star power should he fight on June 9.

Gall was way too experienced for Punk which is why his first fight didn't last every long as he tapped out in two minutes. His cross-over to mixed-martial-arts helped the UFC build a bigger fan base.

CM Punk looked like an amateur fighter in his Octagon debut.


For those unaware, UFC 225 will take place at the United Center in Chicago.

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

CM Punk is making his long-awaited return to the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Despite being 39 years old, Punk still wants to have a semi-successful UFC career as he retired from professional wrestling back in 2014.

Jackson has been campaigning for the fight probably more than anyone and after seeing the tweet himself, he hints at potentially being the opponent.

If Punk wins a UFC 225, the fight with Floyd Mayweather could be fixed for the end of the year, which gives the UFC and Mayweather promotions enough time to market and hype the fight.
