At UFC 225 CM Punk was defeated by Mike Jackson by unanimous decision. There is no arguing CM Punk performed significantly better than he his first fight in the UFC, where he did not make it out of the first round. Punk was able to make it through all three rounds, but Jackson dominated the vast majority of the fight.

CM Punk’s loss most likely means the end of his career in the UFC. He is now 0-2 overall, and it’s doubtful the UFC will give him another fight. Of course it possible Punk could fight in other MMA promotions, like Bellator.
Several wrestling and UFC personalities have gone on Twitter to share their thoughts and appreciation for what CM Punk did.
Lovely to see somebody chase their dreams. Balls. Congratulations @CMPunk
