After nearly a year of freedom, having spent eight months in prison, Cain Velasquez will face a trial on attempted murder charges in January 2024. While awaiting the trial, the former UFC heavyweight champion is attempting to resume his activities.
Following his return to competition in the world of pro-wrestling, Velasquez, as reported by the ‘MMA Fighting’ website, has obtained permission from the courts to serve as a coach and cornerman for his teammate Usman Nurmagomedov at Bellator 300, scheduled for this Saturday, January 7th, in San Diego, California (USA).
As part of the conditions for his release on bail, Velasquez must obtain court authorization for any travel or event he intends to participate in. This will be the first time since his arrest in February 2022 that the former UFC heavyweight champion will be in the corner for a professional fight.
The Executive Director of the Nevada Athletic Commission, Andy Foster, stated: “He is scheduled to be in the corner. We are operating under a court order that allows him to do so.”
