Cain Velasquez retires from UFC, signs deal with WWE

Brock Lesnar vs Cain Velasquez Strowman vs Tyson Fury Officially Announced for WWE Crown Jewel 0By Mike Killam on Oct 11 2019WWE

He has been removed from the UFC's United States Anti-Doping Agency drug-testing pool and the UFC heavyweight rankings.

As noted, WWE announced today that Velasquez will face WWE Champion Brock Lesnar at WWE Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia on Thursday, October 31. Fury is expected to return to the boxing ring in 2020 for a fight against Deontay Wilder, a rematch from their December 2018 bout. Last month, Fury sustained a severe cut above his right eye in a twelve round decision win over Otto Wallin. When he won his first UFC championship against Lesnar in 2010, he told ESPN that he had already been in talks with WWE.

"This match between two larger than life athletes was ignited in a moment that captivated the entire world last Friday night at SmackDown". That same event will also feature a match between Braun Strowman and Tyson Fury, which is reportedly a one-off venture for the British boxer ... at least for now.

Stay tuned for updates on Cain and Fury in WWE.

Cain is leaving MMA with a 14-3 record. The 37-year-old will be joining WWE, where he has signed a multiyear contract with the wrestling organization.

He has fought just three times since 2013, dropping the heavyweight title to Fabricio Werdum in 2015 and rebounding to beat Travis Browne at UFC 200 in 2016.

Velasquez, the two-time UFC heavyweight champion whose never-ending streak of injuries prevented him from fulfilling his potential as the greatest fighter the division has ever seen, will officially never get that chance.

"I had my people get in contact with the WWE so we could go to the training center and just mess around and see if I could even do this".
