Cain Velasquez (Pictured) does not have an official nickname, so FOX has taken the liberty of giving him one. In the network’s latest commercial to promote their mixed martial arts debut, FOX dubbed the reigning UFC heavyweight champion as “The Baddest Man on the Planet.”
Boxing legend Mike Tyson used to go by that moniker during his heyday, as well.
Velasquez owns a perfect 9-0 professional record, finishing off all but one of his victims before the final horns have sounded. He was most recently seen mauling Brock Lesnar last October to capture the crown.
Now that his surgically-repaired shoulder is ready to go, Velasquez will break in his bling-bling against Junior dos Santos at “UFC on FOX” on November 11th.
The Honda Center in Anaheim, California will host their shootout.
