CM Punk says he will return to UFC on June 9
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.
On Monday, Punk indicated that he will fight in the UFC again this summer while he was responding to a Twitter troll.
So when are we gonna see you cry again in the Octagon? @CMPunk

TMZ confirmed that Punk is scheduled to fight at UFC 225 in Chicago, though it is not yet known who his opponent will be.
Punk sounded awfully confident for someone who was choked out in the first round by Mickey Gall, but he has certainly had plenty of time to work on his technique. The 39-year-old signed with the UFC in December of 2014, and he probably has a better understanding of the competition he is up against. It will be interesting to see who Punk’s opponent will be.
