The Former UFC 265-Pound King Cain Velasquez Took Part At His First Pro Wrestling Bout! Cain Velasquez, the former UFC 265-pound king, had a successful pro wrestling debut last night (Saturday, August 3, 2019). He competed at Lucha Libre AAA\u2019s TripleMania card in Mexico City, Mexico. Cain Velasquez discussed his decision to move to pro wrestling in an interview with Sports Illustrated. \u201cI grew up watching pro wrestling, and I\u2019ve always loved it, especially lucha style wrestling.\u201d Velasquez explained. \u201cIt\u2019s something I\u2019ve wanted to do, and I\u2019m happy that I have this opportunity now to do it.\u201d Despite Cain Velasquez (14-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC) fought the WWE Universal Title holder and ex-UFC 265-pound kingpin Brock Lesnar, and annihilated him at UFC 121, he says that his move to pro wrestling was not influenced by \u201cThe Conqueror\u201d. \u00a0\u201cNo, I don\u2019t have a relationship with anybody I\u2019ve competed against. MMA is tough. For me, I don\u2019t really make friends. My opponents are my enemies. So didn\u2019t reach out.\u201d Cain Velasquez said. \u201cI went over to the WWE Performance Center in Florida about a year ago, trained out there, and got my feet wet. I\u2019ve always liked it, I\u2019ve always watched, but to actually go into the ring and do it, it feels perfect.\u201d The ex-UFC Heavyweight king took part in a six-man tag with Psycho Clown and Cody Rhodes, who squared off against Taurus, Los Mercenarios Texans Jr., and a mystery fighter.

The BJJ black belt hints he\u2019ll continue competing in wrestling events after Triplemania. \u201cMy UFC contract allows me to do both. I can keep wrestling as long as I want, and I can keep fighting as long as I want. As far as the wrestling goes, there are two more events that I am for sure doing after Triplemania.\u201d \u201cCardio Cain\u201d last fought in MMA against Francis Ngannou, who stopped him at UFC on ESPN 1 via nasty punch after only 26 seconds. Velasquez said he wasn\u2019t knocked out and claimed he lost the bout because his knee buckled. Before that, the AKA (American Kickboxing Academy) product was forced to take two years off from MMA due to injuries. His last UFC win happened at UFC 200 against Travis Browne on July 9, 2016.
