One of the first real superstars in the game, Ronda Rousey had famously supported Nick Diaz in an indignation fueled rant, speaking about the unfair treatment Diaz received after he was tested positive at UFC 183 for marijuana. Ever since the latest developments emerged in the Cain Velasquez shooting case, indicating the targeted man was accused of molesting his relative, the MMA community was eagerly waiting to hear the boss-man’s take on the issue.

Rousey has jumped in the crusade and went further by claiming that she would have done something of that sort, in a similar situation.

Similar to Rousey, Cain Velasquez had transitioned to pro-wresting and even had a short stint in the WWE. Rousey’s opinion and viewpoint are still held with the highest regard, and it is heart-warming to see her openly support Cain, while empathizing with the trauma he must have been in.

UFC Fighters set in motion the ‘Free Cain’ camp

The following day of Velasquez’s arrest, a report from The San Jose Mercury-News disclosed that Velasquez shot at a car comprising three individuals – including 43-year-old Harry Eugene Goularte, who had recently been accused of molesting a close relative.

Since then several UFC fighters have expressed their support for Cain on Twitter and also set in motion the ‘Free Cain’ movement. Several fighters like Derek Brunson, Ben Askren, and AKA teammates Khabib Numagomedov and Daniel Cormier had come out in support of Cain. The list of fighters who are agitated by the incident, and ventilating their support is growing into an uproar.
