UFC 225 will feature one of the most important rematches in the history of the middleweight division as UFC middleweight champion Robert ‘the Reaper’ Whittaker takes on Yoel ‘Soldier of God’ Romero on June 9 in Chicago, Illinois.

Any card is incomplete without a hometown fighter and so was UFC 225 until WWE superstar and UFC welterweight CM Punk signed for his sophomore fight with the organization. Punk will take on Mike Jackson (0-1) who was also defeated by Punk’s last opponent Mickey Gall.

Due to the stacked nature of the card, women’s featherweight fight between former women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm and former Invicta FC featherweight champion Megan Anderson is scheduled to be the featured bout on UFC 225 prelims and the welterweight bout between Punk and Jackson will kick off the main card. (via Twitter):

This has led Punk to face many criticisms. However Punk has stood up to all those criticisms with a tweet. Punk tweeted, “If it was up to me, I’d be first fight on fight pass. Don’t matter to me. Fans like to be outraged by stuff that doesn’t matter.” (via Twitter):

On December 6, 2014, Punk announced that he had signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC. Punk did everything correct to prepare himself. In January 2015, Punk began training under Duke Roufus at Roufusport MMA Academy. In June 2015, Punk moved to Milwaukee to be closer to the Roufusport gym while still retaining his home in Chicago.

Punk made his debut against Mickey Gall at UFC 203 in September 2016. Expectedly, Punk lost the fight via submission in the first round.

Punk will definitely like to get his win column started at UFC 225.
