Cain Velasquez vs Brock Lesnar - WWE Title Match At WWE Crown Jewel 2019

In the main event of the UFC 121 PPV on October 23rd 2010, Cain Velasquez defeated Brock Lesnar to win the UFC Heavyweight Championship.

9 Years later on October 31st 2019, Velasquez and Lesnar faced off once again, but this time in a WWE ring.

In the opening match of the main PPV/PLE show of Crown Jewel 2019, Lesnar defeated Velasquez via Submission in just 2 minutes and 10 seconds to retain the WWE Championship. This was Cain’s WWE debut match.

During an interview with Quinton “Rampage” Jackson on the Rampage & Bear podcast, Cain talked about fighting with Brock and then working with him. Below are the highlights:

His thoughts on Brock Lesnar:

“Brock was a very big upper body, like, just a monster. Yeah, just looking at him, like, in person. Just like a monster. So, I mean, that was a crazy experience, but I knew what I had with that. I was so good at getting out from the bottom, and that whole camp, like, in general, was Daniel Cormier.”

If it was awkward to work with Brock after defeating him in the UFC:

“I worked with him, yes. I guess (it was awkward). He was a little scarred up. It’s not like we did the thing and it was all good. He has something for life on his face. I don’t know if anybody tells him about it or puts it in his face.”

His thoughts on Brock as a wrestler:

“He’s amazing. He’s the real deal. He’s legit.”

His thoughts on Lesnar’s MMA skills:

“He moves really fast. And very powerful. If he really got a little more comfortable with mixing it up on the striking, like strike really well. Learn how to use this power and stuff. He would do some stuff. He would kill some people.”
