CM Punk's future continues to dominate the headlines and it's now Chris Jericho's turn to weigh in on the future of the former WWE Champion.

Punk left WWE at the end of 2014, to then sign a deal with the UFC in December of that year, fulfilling a life-long dream of getting into MMA and having the chance to fight in the octagon.

Fast forward nearly two years and finally Punk has had that chance and lived his dream, but sadly, it was a dream that soon turned into a nightmare.

The fight begun, and a couple of minutes later, the fight ended.

Mickey Gall took out Punk, punched him a few times, and then locked him in a rear-naked choke, forcing Punk to tap out.

Ever since the humiliating defeat, the future of Punk has been up in the air, with several saying he will stick at it in the octagon, whilst others have said he will never have another UFC fight.

It's now Y2J's turn to get involved, and he's discussed a few things regarding the former WWE superstar.

Jericho commented on Punk's future with UFC and then also commented on whether he feels he could make a dramatic return to WWE.

During an episode of You're Welcome! With Chael Sonnen, 'The Superstar Of All Superstars', Jericho appeared and was asked about Punk, with the first question being whether or not he can see him staying in UFC.

Jericho said: "I think, if I put myself in his position, and there's a lot of brouhaha about him being involved in MMA, and I think the fact that he lost so quickly, that put some egg on his face.

"I think he's going to want to try again just to show people he's not going down like that, so I think he probably will fight again, whether it's the UFC or whatever it is.

"He'll probably fight again and again until he wins. And then, when he wins, maybe he'll start learning from that and win some more.

"I never expected him to be a one-and-done type of guy. What I actually thought was going to happen was he'll have a couple of UFC fights, win, lose, or draw, and after go into commentating or interviewing because then, he could come at it from the standpoint of he knows what it's like to be inside of that octagon."

Jericho was then asked if a return to the squared circle could happen, to which he replied with:

"It would be a big deal for him to come back to WWE, but I don't know if he would ever. I mean, never say never.

"Dusty Rhodes came back. Bret Hart came back. I'm sure, at some point, he'll come through."
