CM Punk I'm Fighting at UFC 225 ... & I'm Gonna Win!

The 39-year-old was easily beaten by Mickey Gall in 2016 and has not fought since

Punk (0-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC), a former professional wrestler who reached the apex of his stardom with the WWE, has spent the past several years training MMA.

The UFC has not announced a fight for Punk, but president Dana White previously has said he intends to give the 39-year-old "another shot". He took on the young and talented prospect, Mickey Gall and was unable to land a single punch in the two minutes and fourteen seconds that the fight lasted before Punk tapped out to a rear-naked-choke.

"June [9], after I win and lock eyes with my lovely wife, embrace my coaches and shout out my entire team", he answered. If Punk's statement is to be taken at face value, he'll be fighting at the event. That just so happens to be the date of UFC 225 in Punk's home town of Chicago. He trains out of Roufusport in Milwaukee. On social media Monday, Punk strongly hinted that he'd be fighting at the event when asked about his next appearance by a fan.

Saudi Aramco IPO faces delay until 2019
In the region, speculation has turned to a possible sale of a stake to a sovereign wealth fund, possibly the Chinese. Saudi officials have not-so-privately indicated that they hoped the company would be valued at some $2 trillion.

Punk, who lives in his native Chicago, immediately said he meant to fight again but has been relatively quiet since.

June 9 is UFC 225 in Chicago - Punk's hometown. However, it was reported in early February that a potential bout between Punk and Mike Jackson, who also previously lost to Mickey Gall, was being targeted for UFC 225. That would certainly make a lot more sense for Mayweather as CM Punk is more or less on his level in terms of being an MMA fighter.
