It Looks As Though CM Punk May Have Found His Second UFC Opponent

Despite being one of the only fighters in the entire roster with a 100 per cent loss rate, it looks as though CM Punk may have found his second UFC opponent.

Punk, who famously became the second WWE star to transition to the UFC, is one of the most controversial men to ever step foot inside the octagon.

Despite having no experience at either pro or amateur level, CM Punk managed to use his fame to garner a spot on the main card of UFC 203.

Arriving to a huge ovation in his hometown of Cleveland, there was a mystique as to how Punk would perform, even if the educated guess was terribly.

Those educated guesses unfortunately proved true and Punk was easily defeated by Mickey Gall.

Afterwards it appeared as though this was a one-off and that the legend of CM Punk would be told as just another strange tale in the crazy world of the UFC.

However, according to Ariel Helwani writing for MMA Fighting, it appears as though the UFC have found a second opponent for Punk, Mike Jackson. However, he did state that discussions are in the early stages.

As mentioned above, CM Punk is one of the only fighters with a 100 per cent loss record. Amazingly, however, his potential opponent also shares a 0-1 record.

If ever there was an opponent for CM Punk this is it, although, in saying that, is this still a level too far for Punk?

Jackson’s record is virtually identical to Punk, having also suffered a submission loss to Gall; his coming after just 45 seconds of the first round.

So is the crazy reality that two men without a pro MMA victory between them will fight on the main card of a UFC event set to come to fruition? 

Who knows, maybe victory here could see Punk earn himself a title shot?
