UFC 225 will take place this Sat., June 9, 2018, at United Center in Chicago, and feature CM Punk is his second-ever mixed martial arts (MMA) bout - a welterweight fight against Mike Jackson. Fresh off his court victory over WWE’s Dr. Chris Amann, Punk will work early on the pay-per-view (PPV) portion of the card against Jackson, who’s also 0 - 1 in pro career, with both men having lost to Mickey Gall in 2016.
