Punk was clapping back at trolls on Twitter when he broke the news … responding to someone who asked, “When are we gonna see you cry again in the octagon?”
Punk’s response … “June nine, after I win and lock eyes with my beautiful wife, embrace my coaches and shout out my entire team.”
June 9 is UFC 225 in Chicago — Punk’s hometown. For now, there’s no word on who his opponent will be.
Punk hasn’t fought since UFC 203 back in Sept. 2016 when he suffered a brutal submission loss in the 1st round to Gall.
