As previously reported on PWInsider.com, former WWE champion turned UFC fighter CM Punk will return to the Octagon, fighting Mike "The Truth" Jackson on 6/9 at UFC 225. 

Jackson told TMZ that he intends to end Punk's UFC Career, saying MMA's 'Not For Him' -

The 6/9 PPV is UFC's debut in Chicago at the United Center.  Punk's addition to that event makes sense, given what he means locally in that market.

Punk has been training at the Roufusport MMA Academy in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for his second appearance in the Octagon.  Punk fought and lost to Mickey Gall in September 2016 in his UFC debut.
