Former WWE star CM Punk (real name Phil Brooks) had been expected to get back in the octagon sometime this year.
Punk, who lives in his native Chicago, immediately said he meant to fight again but has been relatively quiet since.
Punk has been rumored for that UFC 225 card for quite some time as the former professional wrestler hails from Chicago and has a huge fan base in his home city. The fight ended in the first round, with Punk forced to tap to a rear-naked choke.
"June , after I win and lock eyes with my handsome wife, embrace my coaches and shout out my entire team", he answered. Punk has only one career UFC fight on his resume, a first-round submission loss to Mickey Gall at UFC 203 in 2016. He trains out of Roufusport in Milwaukee.

Oddly enough, Punk was responding to a troll on Twitter when the news broke.
The UFC 225 pay-per-view event is scheduled to go down on Saturday, June 9, 2018, at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
As of now, UFC 225 still doesn't have a main event although the promotion has been working on booking a middleweight title fight between Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero for that card. 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. Jackson did compete once as an amateur MMA fighter, losing via unanimous decision to Nick Felder at Lonestar Beatdown 12 in September 2009.
