Cain Velasquez defeated Brock Lesnar via TKO at UFC 121 and now the two will battle once again at WWE’s Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia. Their second encounter is likely going to be much different from their first.
During the media scrum following the big WWE Crown Jewel press conference, Cain Velasquez discussed his disdain for Brock Lesnar. He’s been paying attention to WWE television and he’s not a fan of the Beast Incarnate.
“That’s never left me. Those feelings that I had when I first fought him in 2010 now that’s amplified more so. I’ve been watching him in the WWE for a while and seeing what he does everyday. I’m not a fan of what he does and how he portrays himself when he’s wrestling. So I’m here to change some things.”
The former UFC Heavyweight Champion is going to start his training at the WWE Performance Center soon. He confirmed that his multi-year contract with WWE means that his match against Brock Lesnar isn’t going to be his last in Vince McMahon’s company either.
Hopefully, with stem cell treatments, he can avoid having surgery as well.
