Michael Jackson’s MMA career continued to move forward.

Jackson (1-1, 1NC), best known for losing to CM Punk in the former WWE star’s second MMA fight, will face UFC Fight Night on October 15, 2022 Pete Rodriguez (4-1) played against.

News of the match was first reported mixed martial arts fan. Jackson confirmed the pre-order on social media, ahead of the previously teased fight news coming.

Jackson, a part-time fighter who worked as a photographer for UFC matchmaker Mick Maynard’s Legacy FC, first joined the UFC in 2016. He took on Mickey Gall in the CM Punk draw, becoming the first man to fight punk, whose transition from professional wrestling to MMA made headlines at the time.

Jackson lost the fight and submitted in less than a minute. But he faced Punk in the wrestler’s second bout and beat the born Phil Brooks.The only problem, his performance has been widely criticized, including UFC President Dana Whiteat the time he said Jackson was a “complete idiot” and that he would never fight in the UFC again.

To make matters worse, Jackson’s victory over punk was overturned when he failed a drug test and wasn’t exposed until years after the fact.

Jackson, however, was desperate to return to the cage earlier this year, following an eye-measuring incident, in DQ’s win over Dean Barry. Until then, Jackson had been losing the fight.

iKon Fighting Federation veteran Rodriguez made his UFC 270 debut in January. “Dead Game” lost to welterweight Jake de la Maddalena for the first time as a pro.
