Former UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is set to light up Wrestlemania 34 on April 8 and former WWE superstar CM Punk is expected to make his return to the UFC Octagon in Chicago.

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".

"June nine, after I win and lock eyes with my attractive wife, embrace my coaches and shout out my entire team", Punk responded when asked about the next time he will cry in the Octagon.

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

"June nine, after I win and lock eyes with my handsome wife, embrace my coaches and shout out my entire team", the ex-wrestler replied.

Jackson lost to Mickey Gall, who went onto submit Punk in the first round in his only appearance thus far at UFC 203 in Cleveland back in 2016. He trains out of Roufusport in Milwaukee.

The fight will take place in CM Punk's hometown of Chicago, Illinois at UFC 225 on June 9th.

Fittingly enough, Jackson is also 0-1 in his UFC career, with his loss coming in a first-round submission to Gall at UFC Fight Night 82.

Since the report of the fight came out a few weeks back, a tweet would then be put out there by Punk indicating that he is fighting at UFC 225, but an opponent was not mentioned.
