CM Punk claims he'll return to octagon at UFC 225 in Chicago

Coach Duke Roufus has kept fans up to date with Punk's training and says he has improved

As expected, the former professional wrestling superstar for the WWE, Phil "CM Punk" Brooks will be giving MMA another go after his awful debut back at UFC 203 in September of 2016.

On Monday, a Twitter user attempted to goad the former World Wrestling Entertainment star in to a response by asking "So when are we gonna see you cry again in the Octagon?" Punk is a longtime professional wrestler who has held a plethora of championships in both the WWE and Ring Of Honor. And all evidence pointed to an appearance in his home town of Chicago, which the UFC will be visiting in June.

CM Punk's chose to quit the WWE and pursue his dream of being a cage fighter in the UFC.

UFC 225 takes place on Saturday, June 9 from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois with no main event announced at this time. He responded with, "June nine, after I win and lock eyes with my lovely wife, embrace my coaches and shout out my entire team".

After that defeat at the hands of Gall, UFC President Dana White had mentioned to the media that Punk's next fight probably should take place somewhere else. No word yet on Punk's opponent but it was reported a few weeks ago that Punk may be facing Mike Jackson, who also has a record of 0-1. While the UFC has not confirmed the news, it seems likely that if Punk is to fight again, UFC 225 will be the card.

At that fateful night of September 10th for UFC 203, Punk's night in the cage couldn't have gone much worse.
