Did AEW star CM Punk Retire From UFC?

Yes, CM Punk officially retires from UFC. Punk has notified UFC that he has retired from Mixed Martial Arts. He had to inform UFC of this so that he could be removed from UFC's anti-doping program as he was tested six times in 2020. Since 2018, he hasn't fought in UFC and Dana White indicated at the time that Punk would likely not be back unless he got some wins in smaller promotions. His second and last UFC fight was at UFC 225 where he lost to Mike Jackson via unanimous decision. Punk began training under Duke Roufus' Roufusport academy in 2014 and he was scheduled to make his MMA debut a year later but a back injury delayed those plans to 2016. His status changed in 2021, however, as Punk has not been tested at all this year as he notified the UFC about his retirement while plotting his return to pro wrestling after inking a deal with upstart promotion All Elite Wrestling. After seven years away from the ring, Punk signed a new deal to join AEW where he’s expected to make his debut for the promotion in September.
