It's looking more and more likely that CM Punk's sophomore Octagon appearance will take place at UFC 225.

Gall dominated every aspect of the bout, finishing Punk via rear-naked choke in the first round. Whittaker, who met Rosenberg at a previous Wrestlemania event, proposed to his girlfriend Thursday, with the help of CM Punk.

CM Punk's made a decision to quit the WWE and pursue his dream of being a cage fighter in the UFC. No word yet on Punk's opponent but it was reported a few weeks ago that Punk may be facing Mike Jackson, who also has a record of 0-1. That would certainly make a lot more sense for Mayweather as CM Punk is more or less on his level in terms of being an MMA fighter.
