The UFC is reportedly in discussions to arrange a fight between CM Punk and Mike Jackson for UFC 225 in June.

Both prospective fighters have 0-1 UFC records, with both losses being handed to them by New Jersey-native Mickey Gall.

CM Punk, real name Phillip Jack Brooks, made his UFC debut in 2016 at the age of 37, having retired from the WWE two years previously. His fight with Gall may not have been the arrival he had hoped for in the octagon, tapping out 2:14 into the first round following a rear naked choke from his opponent.

Jackson also lost via submission in the first round against Gall, and the 32-year-old is itching for the chance to match up against CM Punk, a man seven years his senior.

UFC 225 is to be held in Chicago, the home city of CM Punk. No main event has been announced as of the time of writing.
