He is considered one of the best mixed martial arts stars in the world. He has also been a two-time heavyweight champion for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Brock Lesnar once knocked out a star on the way to becoming champion. After seeing Lesnar, Mexican star Kane Velasquez also entered the world of wrestling.

Velasquez has recently made headlines for a completely negative reason. He has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. The former heavyweight champion lost to Lesnar, who was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
Velasquez fired directly at a man in a car on Morgan Hill in Santa Clara, California, NBC reports, citing San Jose police authorities. There were three people in the car. He could not shoot the person he wanted to shoot, but on the contrary, the man’s father was shot.
The man was rushed to a nearby hospital. Although there was no damage to the person who was shot. Velasquez was immediately arrested at the scene.
Velasquez is currently being held in custody, according to the Santa Clara County Jail’s official Twitter account. At first his bail was denied, which is why he has to spend the night there.
The San Jose Mercury News reported that the man Velasquez wanted to shoot was Harry Eugene Gulart. According to the report, Gulart sexually assaulted a minor relative of Velasquez more than 100 times. That’s why Velasquez is angry.
San Jose police are investigating the whole matter.
