Apparently combat sports heavyweight legends Tyson Fury and Cain Velasquez have reportedly signed very different contracts with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), and the details are actually very interesting.
ESPN reports that Tyson Fury and Cain Velasquez have signed different types of agreements with WWE, with Fury's expected to be a "one-off" whereas Velasquez is expected to be with the promotion for much longer.
The report adds that Fury is looking to return to boxing next year and there are some concerns from his camp about a wrestling match reopening up a cut near his eye that required multiple stitches to close.
Velasquez meanwhile has signed a "lucrative, multiyear contract" with WWE and as we noted earlier, has notified UFC of his retirement from MMA and as such has been removed from USADA's drug testing pool and UFC's rankings.
