UFC Legend Cain Velasquez Reportedly Meets with NJPW Officials


Former two-time UFC Heavyweight Champion, Cain Velasquez was reportedly having an informal meeting with New Japan Pro Wrestling this weekend.

Velasquez was in attendance at last night’s NJPW Super J-Cup in San Francisco and according to ESPN’s Marc Raimondi, he sat down for an informal meeting with the company.

“Cain Velasquez is at the New Japan Super J Cup show tonight in San Francisco,” Raimondi tweeted out. “Sources said he’ll be having an informal meeting with NJPW officials. Velasquez is signed on for two more Lucha Libre AAA matches, but several other wrestling promotions have interest, per sources.”

Velasquez impressed during his pro wrestling debut earlier on this month at AAA’s TripleMania XXVII where he teamed with Cody Rhodes and Psycho Clown where they defeated Texano Jr, Taurus, and Killer Kross, with the ex-MMA star seriously impressing.

He will be returning to the squared-circle on September 15 when AAA comes to Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater on September 15.
