Cain’s health status, Max vs. Tony & more in the Sunday Morning Rumor Mill

MMA rumors Cain Velasquez

A MMA triple header concludes tonight on ESPN. MMA rumors run plentiful on a Bellator-Bellator-UFC three day weekend.

Also for the first time in over two years Cain Velasquez is fighting in an UFC cage. Strange times in the world of MMA but the Sunday Morning Rumor Mill is ready for it.

As always these are rumors that have been talked about behind closed doors between MMA higher ups, so take them as MMA rumors.

For those of you who watched every single fight, on every single card this weekend we salute you. For those of us who have Monday off and can treat UFC on ESPN 1: N’Gannou vs. Velasquez like it’s a Saturday night card, you’re the real MVPs.

  • Rumor is after an eight week training camp, Velasquez is about as healthy as you can ask him to be. Any nagging injuries should not play a factor versus N’Gannou.
  • A rumor killer, word is WWE was never interested in signing Cris Cyborg. Ronda Rousey’s decision to stay with WWE has never been impacted by Cyborg signing.
  • Good news for Team Cyborg, as rumors now point to upstart All Elite Wrestling being interested in her as a pro wrestler.
  • From earlier in the week, the rumored Max Holloway and Tony Ferguson title fight may still in the works from UFC.
  • Word is Bellator’s next Grand Prix will occur in the light or featherweight divisions.
