It's been rumored for a while now, and where there's smoke, there's more often than not fire.
Former WWE star CM Punk has confirmed that he will fight in the UFC for a second time in the summer. And all evidence pointed to an appearance in his home town of Chicago, which the UFC will be visiting in June.
The CM Punk MMA show isn't over just yet. The main card will air on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET while the preliminary card will air on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET and the promotion's streaming service, UFC Fight Pass.
White, for the record, has yet to comment on Punk's latest statement.

The Huskies are 8-1 all-time against the Broncos. "There's a lot of quality teams and great players in the field". The shot clock will reset to 20 seconds after an offensive rebound instead of the full 30 seconds.
Responding to a scathing tweet asking when we'd see Punk "cry again" inside the cage, the ex-WWE star announced that he'd be shedding tears for a very different reason (victory) on 9 June. A pro wrestler who was a popular but controversial figure in the WWE, he had zero MMA experience other than training off and on in jiu-jitsu.
Punk landed all six of his shots in the clinch, but Gall threw sharp elbows early in the first round that opened up his opponent. Facing Mickey Gall, Punk only made it two minutes and 14 seconds into the first round, losing by submission. The fight ended in the first round, with Punk forced to tap to a rear-naked choke. That said, it felt like the experiment was over.
It's rumored Punk will be fighting a fighter named Mike Jackson who now has the same fight record as Punk with just one loss and zero wins.
