Ronda Rousey

WMMA legend Ronda Rousey has voiced her support for Cain Velasquez who is currently facing more than 20 years in prison after being charged with attempted murder and nine other offences, following an incident that occurred in San Jose.

The former UFC heavyweight champion allegedly fired a handgun into a truck occupied by Harry Goularte Jr along with two other people one of those being Goularte’s stepfather.

Goularte Jr was recently charged with molesting a close relative of Velasquez. The bullet struck Goularte’s stepfather however he is expected to survive the incident.

Velasquez is also accused of ramming his truck into the vehicle the suspected pedophile was occupying after chasing it down for 11 miles in what has been described as a high-speed car chase.

The 39-year-old has received a lot of support from the MMA community. Rousey is just the latest in a long line of current and former fighters to join the #FreeCain movement.

“I would have done the same thing if not worse #freeCainVelasquez.” Rousey wrote on social media.

‘Rowdy’ first appeared in WWE at the Royal Rumble back in 2018 and instantly became one of the biggest stars on the roster, which eventually led to her headlining WrestleMania 35 in 2019.

On that night, Rousey lost her title in the main event which subsequently led to her leaving the promotion.

The former UFC bantamweight champion has since started a family with her husband, Travis Browne.
