CM Punk says he will fight at UFC 225 in Chicago

Former WWE champion CM Punk says he will fight at UFC 225 in his home town of Chicago, Illinois. While the match hasn’t been made official by UFC yet, Punk used Twitter to spill the beans.

When a fan on Twitter mocked Punk and asked him when will we see him cry again in the Octagon, Punk replied, “June nine, after I win and lock eyes with my beautiful wife, embrace my coaches and shout out my entire team.”

UFC 225 will be held at the United Center and when the location was announced, rumors started to pop up that Punk would get his second outing in the Octagon. His first try wasn’t very successful, and he tapped out in round one to Mickey Gall.

Originally, UFC President Dana White was not going to give the former champion a second chance and suggested that if Punk wants to continue his MMA career, he should find a different company. That all changed when the two met up face to face again and Punk convinced White to give him another shot.
