Since the news broke that former UFC heavyweight Cain Velasquez has been charged with attempted murder for shooting at the man who molested one of his young relatives, tons of people have spoken out and stood by the fighter’s side, as many would do whatever they could to make sure a predator wasn’t walking freely among the streets.
With that being said, WWE legend Ronda Rousey is now speaking out about the horrible situation.
She tweeted out today:
“I would have done the same thing if not worse #freeCainVelasquez”
Needless to say, she doesn’t blame the man one bit for what he has done.
Rousey is married to UFC fighter Travis Browne, who lost to Velasquez at UFC 200 in 2016.
Dana White shared support for Cain as well, along with a number of current and former UFC fighters including Ben Askren, Sean Strickland, and more.
Dana White on the Cain Velasquez arrest….
"I feel sorry for him and his family. It's a horrible thing. I don't know enough details to speak on it, but from what I've heard, you know, we all say we'd do it if that ever happened to us – Cain did it."https://t.co/Er0YV8oJ98pic.twitter.com/bFocWiPuui
One of the best human beings I know. Being around him made you a better person by his actions. There was never a doubt in my mind, the only championship he really ever cared about and cherished was having a good family. We stand with you brother. #FreeCainpic.twitter.com/LG71BnosfJ
If this is true @cainmma is a fucking hero bottom fucking line. There is nothing I respect more than when I man does this. 911 isn't the answer for this. I'll be the first one donating to a gofund me for his defense. Pedophiles need to die.. they can only be fixed with fire…. https://t.co/6FWnwA2QD0
