CM Punt Reports He’s Fighting “June 9”
By FCF Staff
As has been expected, it looks like UFC 225 in Chicago will feature the city’s own, CM Punk, in action.
Punk hasn’t fought since 2016, when he made his pro MMA debut against Mickey Gall at UFC 203, and was quickly finished by the welterweight. At first, the consensus was that Punk would not be brought back to the UFC, but in recent months, that’s changed. On Monday, the 39 year-old tweeted out this, while responding to a fan.
June nine, after I win and lock eyes with my beautiful wife, embrace my coaches and shout out my entire team https://t.co/TmzRWR2kbn

UFC 225 will take place on June 9th in Punk’s home city of Chicago.
