Cain Velasquez’s wish has been granted. 

Judge Gives Cain Permission To Compete

Shortly after being bailed out from jail for $1M, the former UFC Heavyweight Champion requested permission to compete once again. And no, it’s not MMA. Instead, Velasquez wants to make his pro wrestling comeback at ‘Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide’ on Dec. 3 in Tempe, Arizona. 

After some deliberation, Santa Clara County Judge Arthur Bocanegra would give Velasquez the green light to compete, MMA Junkie reports. The house confinement restriction as well as his GPS-tracking for Velasquez will be lifted for a limited time.

The fighter-turned-luchador will fly into Arizona for the event on Dec. 1 and will return on Dec. 4. Since his GPS monitor will be removed for the event, Velasquez will have to hire a police officer to watch over him. 

The History

Velasquez is not much of a stranger when it comes to pro wrestling. Following his retirement from MMA in 2019, the UFC star started a new chapter at ‘Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide’. The WWE would then follow, where Velasquez collided with past rival Brock Lesnar in the ring. 

WWE and Velasquez went their separate ways in 2020 and Velasquez would return to his home at Lucha Libre in 2021. He’s back in the promotion after spending 8 months in jail for the attempted murder of Harry Goularte Jr, who allegedly molested his four year-old son.
