Velasquez defeated Lesnar in UFC for the title in 2010 and Velasquez stepped in the wrestling ring at WWE Crown Jewel and lost to Lesnar in October after a quick tap out.
“I can win it, hell yeah, that’s my mentality for everything,” Velasquez told The Sun.
He added, “For everyone as well, that is how your mentality has to be. I’m going in to win this thing.”
Lesnar will enter the Men’s Royal Rumble match as number 1 and it will be one of the rare occasions when the WWE Champion will be part of the Rumble match instead of a singles match.
