NBC Bay Area is reporting that former UFC star Cain Velasquez was involved in a shooting on Monday night.
Police say that one man was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries and another man has been arrested. It’s not known how Velasquez was involved in the shooting.
Velasquez is a former UFC World Heavyweight Champion and he wrestled a couple of matches in WWE. On the first SmackDown on FOX show, Velasquez debuted and made the save for Rey Mysterio and to set up with Brock Lesnar at Crown Jewel.
There were rumors that he would be involved in the 2020 Royal Rumble but a reported eye injury forced those plans to be scrapped. Velasquez was released by WWE on April 28, 2020.
