CM Punk will be returning to the octagon in Chicago on June 9th at UFC 225, and he’s set to fight Mike Jackson. UFC recently released a poster for the upcoming event, which can be seen below, and it features Punk opposite Mike Jackson at the bottom.

Samoa Joe has been out of action for several months now, but he recently made his return to TV, and he’s set to challenge for the Intercontinental Championship in a ladder match at the Greatest Royal Rumble.

Joe recently spoke to the Saudi Gazette about the event and the impact it could have on the fans in Saudi Arabia.

“I think it’s absolutely necessary that we, the people in the West, do see that the everyday lives of people in Saudi Arabia,” he said. “To see a Saudi family enjoying a night out and being able to see that no matter how much culturally different we might be we are still the same. I think it sends a powerful message. It puts a face on people, its puts a face on the region, and it’s a very different face than perhaps the one we are used to seeing through traditional media outlets. If we can help a fan in the West look over and say ‘wow, they are not much different from us, they enjoy wrestling as much as we do,’ I think we’ve done a service. It’s my greatest hope that comes out of these efforts.”
