Oddly enough, Punk was responding to a troll on Twitter when the news broke.

Former WWE Superstar and current UFC fighter CM Punk last fought in an MMA match back in September 2016 where he lost in under two minutes against Mickey Gall. His cross-over to mixed-martial-arts helped the UFC build a bigger fan base. But Chicago is an important location for Punk - it's his hometown, so this fight will carry even more significance than it already does.

All signs seem to point towards a matchup with Mike "The Truth" Jackson, who was originally vying for a shot at Punk in his UFC debut back in 2016.

Whether the UFC would grant Punk a second chance is something company president Dana White let float in the air for quite some time.

Should Punk secure a win, talks about him fighting Floyd Mayweather Junior could gain momentum.

While it looked like it was a potential "one-and-done" MMA career for the 39-year-old, the Welterweight has now said he will returning to the Octagon for a second professional fight.

"There is no deal for CM Punk to fight anywhere, so we'll see how that thing plays out".

Jackson has been campaigning for the fight probably more than anyone and after seeing the tweet himself, he hints at potentially being the opponent. Should the UFC decide to put this fight together, it is bound to do well and sell a lot of pay-per-views because the UFC would be engaging an MMA audience, boxing fans from around the world and WWE fans as well.
