CM Punk’s second defeat in the UFC has been officially canceled

CM Punk's second defeat in the UFC has been officially canceled

MMA Junkie reports Punk’s loss to Jackson at UFC 225 in June 2018 has been overturned to a no contest. The reason for that is due to Jackson being stripped of the win after he tested positive for marijuana on fight night, but the change to the fight result wasn’t reported publicly until now.

The commission disciplinary document notes Jackson tested positive for “tetrahydrocannabinol due to marijuana” and his discipline was finalized in October 2018 with all parties’ signatures.

Thus, CM Punk’s professional MMA record now reads 0-1 (1 NC). Punk has yet to comment on the story.

Since UFC 225, Punk nor Jackson has fought inside of the Octagon since then. After the fight, UFC President Dana White stated that it wasn’t likely that Punk would fight inside of the Octagon again.
