Former UFC champion Cain Velasquez has been released from the WWE and could be headed back to the UFC.

Although the WWE has been putting on shows through the coronavirus shut down, they have still had to let a few of their talent go. Among those released by the company was former UFC champion, Cain Velasquez first reported by The Wrestling Observer Velasquez was just with the WWE for a couple of brief months. Could this release lead the way for a return to UFC? It may be his best choice.

Prior to signing up with the WWE, Velasquez took part in a Mexican wrestling promo called Lucha Libre AAA. Obviously, one choice could be to return to this course and potentially wait on the WWE to call him back. In his brief time with the WWE he had a fascinating story with another former UFC champ Brock Lesnar. The 2 appeared together at the Crown Gem event in Oct. 2019, in Saudi Arabia.

Velasquez left the UFC after 11 years with the business. At this time a return could see him right back at the top of the heavyweightdivision With numerous sports companies on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, the UFC has actually discovered a method to progress. They have 4 occasions on the schedule start on May 9 with more to be added in June and July. This activity indicates more battles and more chances for fighters than other professional athletes at this time.

At the time he left, Velasquez remained in a little a holding area. While in a position for a title shot, his good friend and training partner Daniel Cormier was the champ at the time. Not desiring to battle a colleague could have pressed him to leave the sport. Now with Cormier on the edge of retirement and Stipe Miocic holding the belt, this could be the ideal time for a return of Velasquez.
