Cain Velasquez likely to get permission to compete in Pro Wrestling while out on bail

Cain Velasquez was formally granted bail on November 8 after 8 months in prison.

The court said that although he recognized Velasquez may pose a risk, he still saw this as a singular targeted incident.

Velasquez has no prior criminal history and is a parent of young children, poses little danger of fleeing, and has already offered a set of conditions.

Velasquez’s bail amount was set at $1 million. He also must comply with a protection order and wear GPS monitoring while staying 300 yards away from the victims in his case.

Cain Velasquez is hoping to participate in a Lucha Libre wrestling bout on December 3rd in Arizona.

Velasquez showed up on Monday for his arraignment in a Santa Clara County court.

According to Nolan King, Velasquez and counsel Ed Sousa were there. They requested permission from the court to perform in a Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide professional wrestling event on December 3.

Cain Velasquez is subject to travel limitations while out on bond, but his legal counsel said he would still submit to GPS tracking and pay for police to go with him.

A district attorney representative requested that the hearing be postponed until lead prosecutor Aaron French is available. This was in response to Velasquez and his team’s request for permission to participate in the competition.

Now the news has come out that the judge is open to the possibility.

“At a second hearing Monday, a judge indicated Cain Velasquez will likely be allowed travel to Arizona for a pro wrestling event Dec. 3. “I have received no information that would cause the Court concern,” the judge said.” – Nolan King tweeted from the scene/

After losing by KO to Francis Ngannou in his last mixed martial arts outing in 2019, Cain Velasquez declared his retirement.

Former UFC heavyweight champion has significant victories against Bigfoot Silva twice, Junior dos Santos twice, Brock Lesnar once, Cheick Kongo once, Ben Rothwell once, and Travis Browne once. After beginning his UFC career in 2008 with his third professional bout, he had a record of 11-3.
