CM Punk - real name Phil Brooks - recorded back-to-back defeats since his ambitious transition to MMA at UFC 225 in Chicago, Illinois.

In 2016, the ex-WWE superstar was submitted in his UFC debut. He returned to the cage on Saturday night, experiencing the same fate.

Though he went the distance with his opponent Mike Jackson, who ultimately got the judges nod.

While UFC president Dana White believes Punk should call it a day, he's received an intriguing offer from Bellator stand out Chalmers.

The colourful (literally) television personalty has racked up a perfect 4-0 professional MMA record through bouts in two promotions; BAMMA and Bellator.

He's impressively stopped each opponent and has yet to get out of the first round.

And Chalmers, 31, wants to set up a bout opposite Punk, and would even settle for Jackson.

Meanwhile, speaking at the UFC 225 post-fight press conference, White admired Punk's heart and durability but reckons he should 'call it a wrap'.

"No, it should be a wrap. The guy's 39 years old. We gave him two shots, and he had a lot of heart tonight, and I think he should call it a wrap," he said via MMA Junkie.

"(Punk) got clipped a lot in that fight, and it looked like he was hurt. Michael Jackson I'm not happy with. This guy was acting like a goofball tonight.

"You get this opportunity to fight CM Punk, and you're doing, like, bolo punches to the body on top. Never looked like he was trying to finish the fight ever. Looked like he could have finished the fight a few times. Never tried.

"I don't know what that guy did for a living before we gave him the shot, but whatever it was, he needs to go back and do that again. He's 0-2 as far as I'm concerned."

Should Punk retire?
