Cain Velasquez Signs Multi-Year Deal With WWE

Two Huge Matches Announced For WWE Crown Jewel

Tyson Fury will switch boxing for professional wrestling at the end of this month when he fights Braun Strowman at a pay-per-view Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.

Cain Velasquez has become the latest UFC star to make the switch over to WWE, joining in the footsteps of Ronda Rousey and Brock Lesnar.

Fury and Wilder's first bout in December 2018 was an absolute thriller which ended in a controversial split draw, with the scorecards at 115-111 for Wilder, 114-112 for Fury, and 113-113. You can read WWE's official match announcements by clicking here and here.

Velasquez defeated Lesnar in 2010 to win the UFC Heavyweight Championship and the story going into the match with Lesnar at Crown Jewel is that Lesnar is looking to avenge that loss.


WWE Crown Jewel, taking place at the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, will air on the WWE Network on Thursday, October 31, at 1 pm ET. Sources told ESPN that he has signed a lucrative, multiyear contract with WWE and has also notified the UFC of his retirement.

Velasquez, who first appeared in WWE and confronted Lesnar on last week's debut of "Friday Night SmackDown" on Fox, has had two previous professional wrestling matches - both six-man tags - for Mexico's Lucha Libre AAA promotion.

Fury said he was "honoured" to compete in the WWE and described himself as "a lifelong fan" of the sports entertainment organisation. However, due to numerous career-threatening injuries and surgeries, the Salinas, Calif., native had only been able to fight three times since his final title defence in 2013.

"This is definitely my focus", Velasquez said of pro wrestling last week. They love it. They're super-excited. I ain't ever seen a 12-round fight with no title, no belt.
