Ex-UFC champ signs with Mexican wrestling organization

Former two-time UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez (14-3) is known for his love for pro wrestling, but yesterday the 36-year-old took it to a new level when he signed a contract with the Mexican wrestling organization – AAA.

Velasquez returned to the Octagon earlier this year after three years lay off, but lost his bout with Francis Ngannou in the first round via KO. The American will still fight in UFC, but on Tuesday he was brought as the newest member of the wrestling company.

He’ll be making his debut on August 3 at “TripleMania” inside Arena Ciudad in Mexico City. His opponent is yet to be confirmed. Last year the American made an appearance in the WWE Performance Center, where he worked out and attended NXT tapings.

The former champion is following in the footsteps of pro MMA fighters like Brock Lesnar, CM Punk, Ronda Rousey, Bobby Lashley who at one point of time were all big stars in the WWE universe.
