    SAN JOSE, Calif. — A judge in California denied bail Monday to former two-time UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, who faces attempted murder and multiple gun assault charges after authorities said he fired at a pickup truck carrying a man accused of sexually abusing a 4-year-old family member.

    Velasquez was arrested in San Jose last week after he chased a pickup carrying the man through busy streets in three Silicon Valley cities, ramming the vehicle with his own pickup truck during an 11-mile (18-kilometer) high-speed chase, prosecutors said.

    Velasquez, 39, fired a .40-caliber pistol at the vehicle several times, wounding the man’s stepfather, who was driving, in his arm and torso, prosecutors said.

    Celebrity attorney Mark Geragos, who is representing Velasquez, told reporters outside the court that he plans on vindicating his client and getting him back with his family, the Mercury News reported.

    Velasquez transitioned to pro-wrestling after retiring from his MMA career in 2019. A former two-time UFC heavyweight champion, he earned title belts in 2010 and 2012.

    SAN JOSE, Calif. (KRON) — Former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez will be returning to the wrestling ring thanks to a Santa Clara County Superior Court judge who granted his request to travel outside of California.

    On Tuesday, Judge Arthur Bocanegra granted Velasquez’s request for permission to travel to Arizona over the objections of prosecutors.

    That means the fighter can now compete in a pro wrestling match, Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide, even though he is facing an attempted murder charge.

    The MMA star was recently released from jail after serving months behind bars without bail. Judge Bocanegra granted a $1 million bail despite prosecutors’ assertions that Velasquez is a threat to public safety.

    Prosecutors charged the MMA star with attempted murder after he attempted to kill an accused child molester in Morgan Hill, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

    Velasquez’s defense attorney said Harry Goularte is a predatory pedophile who molested Velasquez’s 4-year-old son at a daycare operated by Goularte’s mother. Goularte was arrested by San Martin police and charged with child molestation.

    San Jose police said Velasquez chased Goularte’s pickup truck for 10 miles, at times leaning out the window to open fire. The high-speed chase ended after Goularte’s stepfather was shot in the arm and Velasquez surrendered to police on February 28.

    Velasquez celebrated Tuesday’s legal victory on Twitter. He tweeted in Spanish, “I am very happy to return to @luchalibreaaa. See you in Tempe, Arizona this December 3, Mullett Arena.”
    I hope he does well.
