Despite being one of the only fighters in the entire roster with a 100 per cent loss rate, it looks as though CM Punk may have found his second UFC opponent.

"He wants to give it another shot".
"He's a completely different case than most normal human beings".

The following video was made by Champions.co and it featured Jackson in a WWEesque promo, calling out Punk.
All we're waiting for now is a confirmation.
