It’s been almost a year since CM Punk made his UFC debut, and it sounds like the former pro-wrestling star may have his second bout announced soon.
Following Punk’s quick, submission loss to Mickey Gall at UFC 203, Dana White reported that the aspiring fighter likely wouldn’t be back. But, since then, there’s been talk and reports that Punk could in fact be returning to the UFC.
Well, most recently, his coach Duke Roufus, posted the comments below, which refers to Punk fighting again. It doesn’t necessarily mean, however, that it will be in the Octagon. It’s also interesting to see that the talented striker John Makdessi has ventured south to train with the Roufusport team.
