Two-time heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez has quietly retired from mixed martial arts after signing a multi-year deal with WWE, reports ESPN.

Cain Velasquez and Brock Lesnar are set for a rematch more than nine years after the pair fought in the UFC cage, except this time they'll meet in the WWE ring.

Former unified world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury will compete against Braun Strowman at a WWE event in Saudi Arabia on 31 October. But me being the undefeated lineal heavyweight boxing champion, I fear no man. Velasquez has already been removed from UFC's official rankings.

However, North Korean officials have since threatened to resume the tests several times, amid the breakdown in talks. The US test was "clearly carried out in order to pressure us", the North Korean spokesman said.

The UFC did not immediately return a request for comment.

WWE held a press conference Friday afternoon at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the site of Friday's Draft edition of SmackDown, to announce two unique matches for Crown Jewel.

Lesnar vs. Velasquez was facilitated by Velasquez, flanked by the injured Rey Mysterio, assaulting Lesnar on last Friday night's episode of SmackDown. The two promotions have long had talent bounce back and forth, going back to the early UFC days when Ken Shamrock and Dan Severn were stars in both. He has since turned to the world of professional wrestling, just recently signing with the WWE in order to recreate his rivalry with Lesnar in the sports entertainment world. He debuted in the UFC in 2008 and won the heavyweight title in his fourth pro fight. "My family is into it". I haven't seen them excited over something like this in a while.
