Regardless of his righteous reasons, former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez could suffer far longer than expected because of his anger. Velasquez, who last fought in 2019 and sadly left the sport due to his lingering injuries, was one of the UFC’s most decorated champions in the 2010s.
Velasquez, a heavyweight who used to hit at lighterweight speed, owns wins over Travis Browne, Junior Dos Santos, Brock Lesnar, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Ben Rothwell, Chieck Congo and many more. Velasquez, 39, was previously arrested on February 28, 2022 after allegedly stalking a man named Harry Eugene Golarte, who is accused of molesting a young relative of Velasquez’s.
