In the midst of a crazy day for the UFC, some news that has seemingly slipped under the radar, is that CM Punk is returning to action.
UFC president revealed the news to TMZ, stating that Mike Jackson, the only other 0-1 fighter on the UFC’s roster, is pegged as the WWE super-star’s second UFC opponent.
Dana White has confirmed UFC is trying to seal the deal for CM Punk’s next opponent … and it’s Mike “The Truth” Jackson.
Rumors have been swirling for weeks, but White has finally confirmed to TMZ Sports that Jackson — who also lost to Mickey Gall in his UFC debut — is the intended target for Punk at UFC 225 in Chicago.
This fight will go down in CM Punk’s hometown show in Chicago, at UFC 225.
