Support For Cain Velasquez

Once details of the alleged shooting emerged, MMA fighters showed their support for Cain Velasquez and want to see him released from jail.

“I don’t want to live in a country where you can’t shoot someone who sexually abused your child. #FreeCain.”

“FREE Cain Velasquez. At the same time, someone needs to buy Cain some firearm courses for Christmas. That aim could use some work!”

“When first hearing the news I thought there has got to be something else to the story. I’ve known Cain for a long time and despite his intimidating exterior, he is one of the nicest, caring dudes on the planet and a straight-up family man. Could he have handled things differently? Sure. Although most of us haven’t been in this position and who knows how you would react.”

“If this is true, Cain Velasquez is a fucking hero bottom fucking line. There is nothing I respect more than when I man does this. 911 isn’t the answer for this. I’ll be the first one donating to a GoFundMe for his defense. Pedophiles need to die.. they can only be fixed with fire….”
