Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez claims he will be a participant in the 30-man Royal Rumble match later this month.
WWE Champion Brock Lesnar beat the former UFC star in his WWE debut match last October at the Crown Jewel match.
Cain made the news known during an interview with SunSport. Here is what he had to say:
“I can win it, hell yeah, that’s my mentality for everything,” Velasquez said about the Rumble. “For everyone as well, that is how your mentality has to be. I’m going in to win this thing.”
“I thought with the MMA that would be enough, go in there with the same style and same gameplan,” Velasquez said, who had defeated Lesnar via TKO at UFC 121 in October of 2010. “But this is a different animal. Brock is the man here, so I ended up getting caught, the match was going my way, he caught me at the end.”
“I just have to keep pushing forward. I am never going to stop fighting to go out there and beat him again.”
The Royal Rumble pay-per-view event goes down on Sunday, January 26, 2020 Houston, Texas at the Minute Maid Park and airs on the WWE Network.
