Tyson Fury will make his official WWE debut on 31 October

Velasquez has informed UFC of his intention to withdraw from the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) testing pool, effectively retiring from mixed martial arts after a career that spanned 13 years.

Former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez's next octagon appearance will have to wait, if it ever happens again.

Tyson Fury has grabbed all the headlines in WWE since his confrontation with Braun Strowman on last week's debut episode of SmackDown on FOX.

Two huge matches involving Cain Velasquez and Tyson Fury will take place at WWE's upcoming Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia, as confirmed today during a press conference.

"I am undefeated in 30 professional contests and when I go to Saudi Arabia to fight Braun Strowman, I will still be undefeated".

Fury and Wilder's first bout in December 2018 was an absolute thriller which ended in a controversial split draw, with the scorecards at 115-111 for Wilder, 114-112 for Fury, and 113-113. He made that move official Friday, according to ESPN, and has signed a multi-year deal with WWE. Last month, Fury sustained a severe cut above his right eye in a twelve round decision win over Otto Wallin. They love it. They're super excited.

"But it was laughable that Tyson Fury described himself as the heavyweight champion of the world, they need to cut that bullshit out".
