Cain Velasquez is one of the most decorated fighters in UFC history

Cain Velasquez might be known to wrestling fans for being squashed by Brock Lesnar, but for those who know the UFC, he is one of the greatest heavyweights in Mixed-Martial Arts.

With a career record of 14-3-0, Velasquez has fought and defeated many of the sport’s greats, including Junior Dos Santos and Antonio Silva. He even defeated Lesner in a first round technical knockout to capture his first heavyweight title.

Velasquez fought his last bout at Feb 17, 2019’s UFC Fight Night, where he was laid out in 26 seconds by Francis Ngannou for a TKO. He announced his retirement from MMA on October 11 that same year.

After his single-match stint with WWE, Velasquez returned to Lucha Libre promotion AAA and had his return match at their TripleMania Regia II event on December 5, 2021. He faced off with and defeated wrestling legend LA Park.
