CM Punk's Second UFC Fight Set? CM Punk's Second UFC Fight Set?

It has been well over a year since CM Punk was embarrassed in his MMA debut, and the former WWE superstar is finally ready to climb back into the octagon. While the card also featured a heavyweight title fight between Stipe Miocic and Alistair Overeem, a fair amount of that interest could be attributed to Punk.

Punk made the announcement while responding to a rude person on Twitter who asked, "So when are we gonna see you cry again in the Octagon?" It was a first round losing effort against Mickey Gall, who was only fighting for the third time in his MMA career. His cross-over to mixed-martial-arts helped the UFC build a bigger fan base. Eventually he committed to giving the 39-year-old another opportunity, and when the organization announced UFC 225 would takes place in Punk's backyard of Chicago, it seemed like a natural fit for his return.

At the time of this writing, it is unknown who Punk's opponent for UFC 225 is going to be.

Sources told the Free Press Journal that the autorickshaw toppled after the speeding luxury auto rammed in to it from the rear. The accident took place between 1 and 2 pm in front of Indralok Building, Lokhandwala Back Road in Andheri West.

This date comes as a no-brainer for Punk's sophomore appearance as the event is UFC 225 in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois. After utilizing a double-leg takedown, Gall pushed Punk against the cage fence and dropped his opponent to the mat.

It looks like CM Punk may have booked his next fight. Should the UFC decide to put this fight together, it is bound to do well and sell a lot of pay-per-views because the UFC would be engaging an MMA audience, boxing fans from around the world and WWE fans as well.
