Now that his time in court is a wrap, CM Punk/Phil Brooks can focus on the other important to do items in life like his second fight in the UFC, coming up this Saturday at Chicago's UFC 225 against Mike Jackson.
While he hasn't done any media leading up to the fight, the PPV opener did his annual longform chat with MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani and also a shorter form talk with MMA Junkie's John Morgan.
In the Helwani interview, he talks about the recently wrapped up defamation trial and the emotions leading up to the final decision. He talks about whether he is going to sue for legal expenses, why the trial was this week, and more.
The 39-year-old lost his first career fight to Mickey Gall in September 2016 while Jackson dropped his first UFC fight to Gall in quick fashion as well. As of Wednesday, Jackson is a -225 favorite going into Saturday.
UFC 225 is headlined by welterweight champion Robert Whittaker defending his title against Yoel Romero with an interim middleweight title fight between Rafael dos Anjos and Colby Covington as the co-main event. Holly Holm vs. Megan Anderson is also on the PPV portion.
