Heading into this weekend’s highly-anticipated UFC 225: Whittaker vs. Romero II pay-per-view at the AllState Arena in Rosemont, Illinois, UFC continues to unload promotional material around several of the more high-profile fights on the stacked fight card.

One of which is the bout that pro wrestling fans are looking forward to more so than any other on the card — CM Punk vs. Mike Jackson.

Although both fighters are 0-1 inside the Octagon, and in their professional MMA careers in general, there is a high level of anticipation for their showdown this Saturday night from the pro wrestling community.

In a new video released this week, CM Punk and Mike Jackson both speak about their previous loss, which was against Mickey Gall for both guys, as well as their thoughts on fighting each other in their second Octagon appearance this weekend in the Chicago area.

According to CM Punk, he “can’t lose” fighting in his hometown this Saturday night.

“I feel like I can’t lose with that hometown advantage,” said Punk in the video. “I want to get this win for the entire city of Chicago. I’ve grown leaps and bounds and I have gained a ton of experience and knowledge, and I will bring that into the cage, and I will defeat Mike Jackson.”
