CM Punk Continues To Hint About Fighting At UFC 225 PPV

CM Punk Continues To Hint About Fighting At UFC 225 PPV

Punk, who lives in his native Chicago, immediately said he meant to fight again but has been relatively quiet since.

CM Punk revealed via Twitter on Monday afternoon that he will make a grand return to the Octagon at UFC 225. The UFC and CM Punk will be hoping that he puts up a much better performance and secures a win in Chicago. The event takes place at United Center. That just so happens to be the date of UFC 225 in Punk's home town of Chicago. He was immediately signed by the UFC, but his debut didn't go well by any standard. The UFC hyped up CM Punk's debut and it helped to sell a lot of pay-per-views as Punk had a massive fan following in the WWE. He was was swiftly submitted in the opening round. Punk has no amateur MMA experience to speak of and he does train with Roufusport out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Whether the UFC would grant Punk a second chance is something company president Dana White let float in the air for quite some time.

Dana White said in January that he was going to give Punk another shot, and his second career fight will happen in the flawless place.

Punk has remained mum on the subject over the past several months.

As of now, UFC 225 still doesn't have a main event although the promotion has been working on booking a middleweight title fight between Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero for that card. Punk did not mention any potential opponents for the card.
