Since CM Punk was quickly submitted by Mickey Gall last September, it’s been unclear as to what the former pro-wrestling star’s future in fighting is. But, a recent post from his coach Duke Roufus indicates that Punk continues to train out of his famed Milwaukee camp, and hints he could be returning to action.

The 38 year-old Punk has said he believes his next fight would be with the UFC, despite the fact Dana White has relayed it likely wouldn’t be. Recently Roufus posted the comments below on Instagram, which reference Punk:

I am such a firm believer in #team Together Everyone Achieves More! Every year I strive to get better as a coach and build a great team culture. I am so proud of all of our team, staff and students.
