The former WWE superstar made his mixed martial arts and UFC debut last September at UFC 203, which took place at the Quickens Loan Arena, in Cleveland, Ohio.
Punk, real name Phillip Brooks took on fellow rookie Mickey Gall, who went into the contest as the overwhelming favourite.
The contest went as many had predicted and saw Gall, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu brown belt, dominate Punk before submitting him with a rear-naked choke a little over two minutes into the first round.
Despite the emphatic and very humbling nature of his defeat to Gall, Chicago native Punk is still keen on fighting in mixed martial arts’ premier organisation.
“Yea, absolutely,” Punk said during an appearance on Windy City Live when asked if he intends to carry on fighting. :It’s all tough.
“When I was a wrestler, I was throwing myself at the ground 300 days a year.
“Now I’m more focused on different disciplines, and I get to sleep in my own bed every night.”
Punk’s latest comments on his future came less than a week after he confirmed he’s searching for an opponent for his second MMA and UFC fight.
“Working on it,” Punk tweeted when asked when he’ll be fighting next.
“Training and dealing with a lower body thing at the moment.”
