It's been a hectic month or so for CM Punk.

He finally made his long-awaited octagon debut at UFC 203, but it was finished within minutes as he was forced to tap out against Mickey Gall.

Punk signed for UFC back in December 2014, and after nearly two years of training and hard work, his debut finally arrived.

However, it started badly, and it never improved. Punk was taken down to the mat and was put in a rear-naked choke, forcing him to tap out in the first round.

After the fight, Punk looked visibly deflated and disappointed with his own performance, but he was adamant that he'd return one day.

In the aftermath, people have been speculating what is next for Punk. Plenty have backed him to step foot back in the octagon, whilst others have said UFC just isn't for him given the lack of experience and the annihilation during his debut.

Even a shock return to WWE has been discussed, with John Cena saying if it's best for business, Vince McMahon will look to get it done.

But, the man who really decides what Punk does next is Dana White, and he's recently spoken to TMZ Sports and discussed Punk's future with the company.

White, who has a good relationship with the former WWE superstar, revealed how he spoke to Punk following the fight, and he opened up about what he told him.

The UFC president said: “I’ve gotta talk to him.

"He called me the night of the fight, he was on his way home. I told him to go spend some time with his wife [and] live like a normal person for a little while and then we’ll get on the phone and talk about what’s next for him.”

People are already suggesting that Punk's UFC career is over, but it's clear that he wants to remain in the octagon, and it won't come as a surprise if he has another fight somewhere down the line.
