Cain Velasquez has signed signed a major seven figure multi-year deal with WWE.
Vince McMahon is looking to bring a UFC type feel to the Brock Lesnar vs Cain Velasquez match at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.
Both men are now retired from UFC and have received big paydays from the WWE to hang up their fighting gloves.
Brock Lesnar is set to retain his WWE Championship and this match will be used to set up a future showdown, currently being discussed for WrestleMania 36 in 2020.
Vince McMahon is planning to make Cain Velasquez a big WWE/UFC cross breed star to sit right along with Brock Lesnar.
WWE is under a lot of pressure to deliver big ratings with Smackdown on FOX and Brock and Cain will be the big names WWE uses to market to the main stream.
Crown Jewel takes place October, 31st from the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia streaming exclusively on the WWE Network. Stay tuned to Slice Wrestling for the latest updates.
