CM Punk Pretty Much Blatantly Says He’s Fighting At UFC 225 In Chicago In A Response To A Troll
CM Punk is completed utilizing emojis to hint at the date for his next fight, the person also called Phil Brooks is now blatantly citing UFC 225’s date of June 9 to close down trolls on Twitter. A peak second in social media’s affect on the battle sport, little doubt.
Right here’s Punk, fairly clearly stating when he’s going to battle, which can or could not make Dana White completely happy.
Punk’s opponent isn’t confirmed but, neither is his battle clearly, however all indicators level to Mike Jackson, who misplaced to Mickey Gall just a few years again for the fitting to battle Punk within the first place. Jackson’s at present Zero-1 and has spent most of his time as a kickboxer, so stylistically it opens up extra choices for Punk. As an alternative of dealing with down a BJJ brown belt with sharp elbows like Gall, this will begin on the feat and presumably keep there, which can or might not be an excellent factor.
UFC 225 is technically Chicago’s first UFC PPV (and in addition its first summer season UFC present) and has been a sought-after touchdown spot for an extended checklist of fighters able to hop again into the Octagon. The middleweight title will seemingly be on the road as Bobby Whittaker takes on Yoel Romero, and Alistair Overeem, Rashad Evans and Joseph Benavidez are all on the cardboard.
Now it looks like that’s partially to get on this homecoming present for Punk. Good enterprise. Sadly, Punk isn’t fighting Floyd Mayweather, however he ought to.
