Jack Gallagher has somebody very close to home in mind when it comes to a potential opponent for CM Punk's next fight in UFC.
For a while, the constant CM Punk talk died down a little. Four years after walking out of WWE fans began to talk less and less about The Second City Saint one day returning to professional wrestling to save us all and get what would probably be one of the biggest crowd reactions in the history of the industry. Then those comeback rumors started right back up as we hurtled towards Raw's 25th-anniversary show.
That show has now come and gone, of course, and as realistically expected, CM Punk was nowhere to be seen. That hasn't kept The Straight Edge Superstar out of the news however as it seems his career in UFC might not be over quite yet. The MMA promotion's president Dana White broached the topic of Punk in a recent interview saying that he is in the process of setting up a second fight for him in UFC.
White also informed us that while a second fight is likely to happen, he currently has no idea when it will take place or who it will be against. Well, Jack Gallagher has a pretty neat idea, himself. The 205 Live star threw down the challenge a few days ago via Twitter, posting a link to White's interview along with the caption "Doesn't have an opponent. I have two minutes to spare."

Not only did Gallagher call out Punk, he also threw a little shade with the two minutes comment. The former WWE Champion has only fought in UFC the one time up until this point, of course, being beaten by Mickey Gall in a match that lasted a little over two minutes. The challenge isn't unfounded either. Gallagher may have never fought in UFC but he does have a history in MMA as well as pro wrestling.
The likelihood of this match actually taking place is extremely unlikely of course and Jack Gallagher is simply having a little fun on social media. In fact, it's probably more likely that the two would square off inside a wrestling ring than an octagon, and even that is very, very unlikely at this point in time.
