CM Punk is one of Chicago’s favorite sons, and it sounds like he could be fighting there soon.
In responding to a jab on Twitter, the former WWE superstar-turned-UFC fighter announced the date and location of his second appearance for the promotion: UFC 225 at the United Center in Chicago on June 9.
June nine, after I win and lock eyes with my beautiful wife, embrace my coaches and shout out my entire team https://t.co/TmzRWR2kbn— Coach (@CMPunk) March 12, 2018
Punk (real name: Phil Brooks) wrote in the tweet that he plans to pick up a win on “June nine” and then celebrate with his wife (fellow WWE alumna “AJ Lee”) and coaches.
The UFC has not officially made any indication that Punk will be booked for the Chicago pay-per-view.
