Former UFC champion Cain Velasquez (36) has his mind set on another field – pro wrestling.
Velasquez has signed with top Mexican lucha libre (Pro Wrestling) promotion Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide as a heavyweight competitor. He will have his first Lucha Libre match at Triplemanía XXVII on August 3 2019.
Velasquez’s much awaited debut would be in 6 man trios action, with Velasquez teaming up with Cody Rhodes and Psycho Clown to take on Texano Jr, Taurus, and a mystery partner.
Velasquez will join Ronda Rousey, Josh Barnett, Mirko Cro Cop and Frank Mir as former MMA champions that have transitioned to Pro Wrestling.
The former UFC champ announced the transition back in March but at the time, he didn’t announce the match up:
