Velasquez, who unifies the UFC Heavyweight title against current interim UFC Heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum at UFC 188, didn’t seem opposed to the idea when asked about it during a recent interview.
In speaking with The Roman Show, Velasquez was asked about Ronda Rousey’s star power and whether or not a future in WWE is something he would consider.
“Not anytime soon,” said Velasquez during the interview, which you can watch above. “I am focused on this fight [against Werdum]. Let’s see what happens on my career in fighting [although] I can never say never.”
Velasquez continued, “We will just have to wait.”
For now, Velasquez is preparing for his Octagon return, as he defends his UFC Heavyweight Championship against interim UFC Heavyweight Champion Fabricio Werdum in the main event of UFC 188, which takes place on Saturday, June 11, 2015 in Mexico City, Mexico.
