Cain Velasquez Pursuing WWE Path More Than The UFC Would Like

Former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez has not competed inside the octagon for quite some time. Now it would appear that the former title holder is trying a bold negotiation strategy with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

Cain Velasquez recently paid a visit to the WWE Performance Center. There, the former UFC champion received some top notch training in the world of professional wrestling.

“I had a great time over the last couple days getting a few workouts in at the #wweperformancecenter and attending @wwenxt. Thanks to everyone at @wwe for the Invite and first-class treatment. #LuchaLibre”

“A huge thanks to Norman Smiley and Johnny Moss for showing me the ropes at the #wweperformancecenter. Your coaching staff and athletes are amazing. Thanks again @wwe.”

Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, reporter Dave Meltzer revealed that Velasquez is negotiating a new deal with the UFC. The reporter then claimed that Velasquez’s trip to the WWE Performance Center was because the fighter “wanted to show UFC that he’s got other options.”
