UFC fighter/former WWE star CM Punk has confirmed he'll be stepping into the octagon once again for a fight set to take place in Chicago.
There is also now no word as to who CM Punk's potential opponent will be. UFC President Dana White hinted that Punk could be cut but it appears Punk is going to get one more shot in June at UFC 225.
Jose Mourinho hits back at Frank de Boer over Marcus Rashford
De Boer had claimed that Mourinho did not have the patience to let Rashford develop because he was all about getting results. De Boer lost all four of his Premier League games without scoring a goal before he was sacked by Palace in September.
June 9 is, of course, the date of UFC 225 in Chicago. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass, though the full lineup ands bout order haven't been finalized.
Punk's signing in 2014 turned a lot of heads in the MMA world.
Punk didn't reveal an opponent, which will likely come from outside the current roster given the pro wrestler's lack of MMA experience. Despite that, the UFC brought him in no doubt hoping to boost ratings. He took on the young and talented prospect, Mickey Gall and was unable to land a single punch in the two minutes and fourteen seconds that the fight lasted before Punk tapped out to a rear-naked-choke. Jackson did compete once as an amateur MMA fighter, losing via unanimous decision to Nick Felder at Lonestar Beatdown 12 in September 2009.
After early year slump, crude oil returns to profit
April West Texas Intermediate crude fell 68 cents, or 1.1%, to settle at $61.36 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Increased supply did not quell demand for the notes, a positive sign for the heavy issuance expected in the year ahead.
To his credit, Punk handled defeat gracefully, and stayed dedicated to his training.
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.
