前UFC(終極格鬥冠軍賽)重量級冠軍好手Cain Velasquez,在臺北時間3月2日時因涉及槍擊事件而遭到加州警方逮捕,據了解因為Velasquez家族中的4歲孩童遭到日托中心年約43歲的Harry Goularte長期猥褻,憤而開車衝撞Goularte的車輛並開了3槍,造成Goularte的繼父受傷。

在UFC留下14勝3敗戰績、二度奪下重量級冠軍的Velasquez,最讓人印象深刻就是在2010年UFC 121中挑戰素有「野獸」之稱的Brock Lesnar,最終Velasquez以重拳在第一回合尾聲中擊敗Lesnar,順利奪得重量級冠軍頭銜。

2019年後雖宣布從綜合格鬥界中退休,但該年Velasquez突然現身在WWE(世界摔角娛樂)當時的SmackDown節目《20th Anniversary of SmackDown》中,並衝上擂台襲擊當時為WWE重量級冠軍的Lesnar,結果WWE也順勢安排兩人在Crown Jewel沙特阿拉伯賽事中再次對壘。

之後Velasquez還在8月以蒙面摔角手的身份在AAA(墨西哥職業摔角聯盟)出賽,但僅只和AAA簽訂了3場比賽的合約。

回到這次的事件中,雖然Goularte的繼父已無生命危險,但Velasquez正式被落案起訴6條罪行,其中包括意圖謀殺及未遂,恐將面臨20年的刑期,不過整個格鬥圈一面倒地支持Velasquez的行為,並在社群中發起「Free Cain」,希望能藉此替Velasquez得到減刑的機會。
