Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell is the latest to show support to Cain Velasquez.
Earlier this year, the former UFC heavyweight champion was arrested on attempted murder charges. The former MMA fighter reportedly chased a man through traffic and fired at his vehicle several times. Over the following weeks, more details were released as to the situation involving Velasquez.
The individual who Velasquez fired at was recently arrested for molesting one of his relatives. However, he instead hit the man’s father who was in the car with him. As a result, Velasquez has been arrested for attempted murder, as well as a litany of other charges.
In the months following the incident, Velasquez has been denied bail several times. The judge on the case also stated that the former fighter has a clear disregard for human life. A statement that was then torn apart by several MMA personalities, including Brendan Schaub.
