Report: Cain Velasquez to Withdraw From USADA, Will Focus on Pro-Wrestling
By FCF Staff
Following an appearance on the latest WWE Smackdown event, it’s being reported Cain Velaquez is going to put his MMA career on hold to focus on pro-wrestling.
Recently Velasquez performed at two Lucha Libre AAA pro-wrestling events, prior to his appearance for WWE on Friday. MMA Junkie is reporting that a source with knowledge of the situation has confirmed Velasquez plans to leave the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) testing pool. Doing so would make him ineligible to compete in the UFC.
The 37-year-old, former UFC heavyweight champ has also told ESPN that he plans to make pro-wrestling his focus.
Velasquez (14-3) hasn’t fought since February, when he was quickly finished by Francis Ngannou at UFC on ESPN 1.
