Velasquez himself last fought at the UFC on ESPN on February 17, 2019. At that time, he lost by KO to Francis Ngannou in just 26 seconds.
He once held the UFC heavyweight world title after defeating Brock Lesnar in 2010. However, he lost the title the following year after losing to Junior dos Santos.
