You read that correctly, former two time UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez was not only at NXT tapings last night, but he was also filmed. WWE had a film crew on him during Johnny Garhano’s entrance according to someone in attendance. You can see the tweet below of him in the audience being taped.

If you are unfamiliar with Cain Velaquez, he is a two time UFC champion with a pretty impressive MMA record (14-2). He has defeated Brock Lesnar in the octagon. Back in 2013 he signed an eight year deal with UFC, so there would have to be approval from Dana White and UFC. You have to wonder if WWE and UFC have finally figured things out and ready to help cross promote the two largest combat sports companies in the world.
