After Brock Lesnar and “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey, it’s time for the another UFC legend to step in to the squared circle. Two-time Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez trained at the WWE performance center in Orlando, Florida, alongside NXT stars and naturally a lot of rumors are doing the rounds.

Cain Velasquez is famous for defeating Brock Lesnar in the first round of the UFC Heavyweight championship match, via TKO. His win-lose record stands at 14-2 and holds several UFC records including most knockouts.
It is to be noted that this is not the first time Cain has shown interest for WWE.
“My experience here has been amazing,” Velasquez said, per WWE. “I’m just looking forward to being here and learning as much as I can. I’ve been a fan of the sport since I was a little kid, and now I get to participate in it.”
As you can see from the below Twitter post, Velasquez was also found ringside at NXT.

Velasquez, who is currently 35 years old, last fought in July 2016 against Ronda Rousey’s husband Travis Browne, who recently expressed his desire to fight in the WWE alongside his wife. WWE is certainly seeing an influx of MMA superstars more than ever and Velasquez definitely has the star power to step in to the ring.
