CM Punk might get second MMA fight at UFC 225 in Chicago

Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting.com is reporting that UFC is looking at the possibility of having CM Punk fight Mike Jackson at the upcoming UFC 225 card on June 9 in Punk’s hometown of Chicago, Illinois.

Both Punk and Jackson have a record of 0-1 and Jackson actually lost the fight to Mickey Gall where the winner was going to get Punk at UFC 203. Gall defeated Jackson and then tapped out Punk in the first round.

While Punk moved out of the spotlight ever since his quick loss, he continued his MMA training at Roufusport in Milwaukee and has been very vocal about getting another shot inside the UFC Octagon.

UFC 225 will take place at the United Center a week before WWE comes to Chicago for Money In The Bank.
