Former WWE Superstar CM Punk is ready to face Mike Jackson in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois tonight at UFC 225 after making weight on Friday.
Both Punk and Jackson weighed in where they needed to be for their welterweight bout: Punk at 169 pounds, Jackson just hitting the limit at 170.5.
What’s most interesting about this for WWE fans is how Punk’s wife, AJ Mendez Brooks (aka AJ Lee), reacted when a WWE fan tweeted her a clip of her hubby on the scale.
YEAH! – @TheAJMendez 😂🙌
