It has been rumored that Punk would be returning to fight at UFC 225 in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois on June 9th. Punk himself seemed to confirm the news on Twitter this week. When responding to a fan who asked when people would see him crying in the Octagon again, Punk claimed they would get the chance at the upcoming UFC PPV in Chi-Town.
"June nine," wrote Punk via his official Twitter page. "After I win and lock eyes with my beautiful wife, embrace my coaches and shout out my entire team."
