The former UFC Heavyweight Champion has been awaiting his next court date in jail for the last month. He was arrested on February 28th for attempted murder and a handful of criminal charges.
This would stem from Velasquez shooting at Paul Bender, the step-father of Velasquez’s target, Harry Goularte Jr. Goularte allegedly molested one of Velasquez’s children and was released shortly after.
Cain Breaks Silence
Velasquez has not spoken on the situation since then, at least not until now. The former UFC fighter would send out an emotional message to his family, friends and fans on Tuesday.
“To everyone that has expressed your support, my family and I will never be able to thank you enough,” Velasquez’s team posted on social media. “From the bottom of our hearts and the depths of our souls, we are forever grateful for your love. Your selfless gestures and kind words have given me strength in my darkest times.
This story is complex and slowly unraveling as we speak. To the true victims of this case, may God give you the strength to come forward. Though it is most difficult to relive the pain that has happened to you, in speaking the truth, justice will be served and your own true healing will start.”
‘Thank You For Loving Me’
Velasquez would once again thank everybody who is supporting him through this hard time.
“I will never stop helping or loving my community and all of you. Thank you for loving me.”
We’ll see what verdict is given out to Cain Velasquez during his court date on Tuesday. Stay tuned to the story on Middle Easy.
