Professional wrestler-turned-fighter Phil "CM Punk" Brooks suffered an embarrassing beatdown in his UFC debut, but more than a year after his loss to Mickey Gall at UFC 203, the 39-year-old is preparing for a comeback in his hometown.

Punk claims he will win and cry when he locks eyes with his wife (fellow ex-WWE star AJ Lee) and coaches. After the ECW experiment ended, Punk's career took off as he would win a total of five world championships, including a 434-day reign with the WWE Championship in 2011.

Last month, Punk hinted at a comeback when he reacted to a UFC social media post about UFC 225.

Almost two years after his UFC signing was announced, Punk stepped in the octagon against Mickey Gall at UFC 203 in September 2016.

There is also now no word as to who CM Punk's potential opponent will be. He trains out of Roufusport in Milwaukee.

UFC 225 takes place June 9 at United Center in Chicago. While the UFC has not confirmed the news, it seems likely that if Punk is to fight again, UFC 225 will be the card. His one and only fight to date ended in disaster that night, as he was steamrolled by the younger, more talented Mickey Gall.

While no official announcement has been made, there have been reports that Punk may face off with Mike Jackson, who fell in his lone UFC fight back in 2016 in a bout that determined the first opponent to welcome the former WWE superstar to the Octagon.
