Although CM Punk's UFC debut didn't go as planned, he is set to return to the Octagon. Gall, however, did not give Punk a chance to generate offence as he pounced on the former wrestling star and forced him to tap out via rear-naked choke in the 2:15 mark of the first round. He responded with, "June nine, after I win and lock eyes with my handsome wife, embrace my coaches and shout out my entire team".

Almost two years after his UFC signing was announced, Punk stepped in the octagon against Mickey Gall at UFC 203 in September 2016. He trains out of Roufusport in Milwaukee.

It looks like CM Punk may have booked his next fight.


Despite plenty of naysayers who feel Punk's spot in the UFC is unearned, it appears the fight may actually happen.

WWE champion CM Punk, left, is shown with fans Oliver Whittaker, of London, right, and his fiancee Maria Rosenberg, of Chattanooga, Tenn., at the WWE Wrestlemania Axxess, a fan event at the Miami Beach Convention Center, Thursday, March 29, 2012 in Miami Beach, Fla.

Punk hasn't fought since UFC 203 back in September 2016 when he suffered a brutal submission loss in the 1st round to Gall. While having a hometown favourite with tremendous mainstream exposure on a UFC main card makes sense, the UFC has not yet confirmed that Punk will indeed be fighting at UFC 225. His one and only fight to date ended in disaster that night, as he was steamrolled by the younger, more talented Mickey Gall.
