The UFC Will Not Go To Mexico Without A Healed Up Cain Velasquez

January 28, 2014 11:10 am by BJPENN.COM News

UFC heavyweight champion, Cain Velasquez, has not seen the inside of a cage since his October TKO stoppage over career nemesis, Junior dos Santos.

Now sidelined with a shoulder injury, the UFC’s heavyweight division is on hold, but not just that. The UFC’s planned trip, south of the border, into Mexico is also on hold, pending a full recovery of the champ.

“Won’t go (to Mexico) without him. As soon as he’s ready, we’ll do it. We’re ready as soon as he’s ready,” stated UFC President Dana White.

“We can go to Ireland without Conor McGregor, but going into Mexico without Cain would be silly.”
