“To be here, in front of you guys, right now, it’s a dream come true,” Velasquez said. “I truly appreciate it all, what you guys have always done, supporting me, my family.”

Velasquez was released from prison after posting bail, allowing the MMA veteran to return to a somewhat normal life until his trial. The 40-year-old was put behind bars following an attempted murder charge which featured an 11-mile-high speed chase with Harry Goularte. Goularte has been accused of molesting his four-year-old son. Velasquez reportedly fired shots from a .40-caliber handgun into the car, carrying Goularte and his mother and stepfather. Goularte’s stepfather, Paul Bender, was shot twice but with no life-threatening injuries.

Saturday night, Velasquez returned to perform in between the ropes. Considering the former champion has been out of action, he never missed a beat with several exciting manoeuvres and winning the match.
