The power of lucha is real and the connection between the WWE and the UFC is closer than ever. Sure, there are die-hards in both segments of the fandom who actively hate the other or refuse to acknowledge how close the two brands have become. Daniel Cormier and Cain Velasquez? MMA’s favorite Best Friends Forever just want to be entertained.
From WWE’s Elimination Chamber pay-per-view last night (Feb. 25) in Las Vegas, your eyes did not deceive you, that was in fact Cormier and Velasquez marking out in the front row.
The pair was there to support Ronda Rousey but they were also there in authentic Lucha libre masks. Ole Daniel Cormier and Cain Velasquez, ole.
