On December 26th, 2018, an official announcement was made by the UFC in regards to the return of Cain Velasquez. A competition slated for February 17th was declared by the promotion, in an attempt to solidify a mega-fight between Francis Ngannou and Cain Velasquez. Both fighters will be entering this contest with wins from their previous performances, making it a must-watch fixture from the perspective of MMA nerds and critics.

In a recent interview with Yahoo Sports, Velasquez confessed that he would retire from mixed martial arts if his level of competence against Ngannou doesn’t suffice. Following a near three-year lay off from the sport, ‘ring rust’ may come to be the career-demising factor of arguably the most accomplished heavyweight of all time. But with that being said, Cain Velasquez is all set to make a spectacular comeback to the UFC and is sure to put on a show for his fans.
