CM Punk returned to the octagon for his second official MMA fight during the UFC 225 pay-per-view last night. It was his first MMA fight since his loss to Mickey Gall at the UFC 203 event back in 2016. Punk faced off against Mike Jackson in a bout that did not fare well with critics or fans, and unfortunately for the former WWE Superstar, Jackson emerged victorious via unanimous decision after three rounds. This has now left Punk’s MMA record at 0-2. With two losses and no wins in his MMA career, a lot of doubt has been cast over CM Punk’s future in UFC. So what is exactly is next for CM Punk? Dana White may have provided an answer for fans after the fight concluded last night.
UFC President Dana White has been extremely critical of the fight, even noting that he regrets giving Jackson the fight and even putting the bout on pay-per-view. As far as CM Punk is concerned, White confirmed that he will likely not be competing in UFC again for a while. During a post-fight press conference, White noted that he and Punk are friends, and he admires him for competing for three consecutive rounds, but he was also aware of just how hurt Punk appeared to be during the fight. Before UFC 225, Punk said that he wanted to continue his MMA career regardless of the outcome of his fight against Jackson, but White has now admitted that Punk’s UFC run “should be a wrap.”
Ronda Rousey will be taking on Nia Jax for her Raw Women’s Championship in her first official singles match in her wrestling career during the Money in the Bank pay-per-view on July 17th. Rousey ran into an error during the buildup to her match against Jax. Rousey did commentary during a match between Nia Jax and Natalya on Raw recently, and the former UFC fighter appeared to be very uncomfortable. During an episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer confirmed that Rousey was not pleased with her role during that edition of Raw. The scripted nature of the segment reportedly bothered Rousey and made her feel as if she was being unnatural.
