UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez is expected to return from shoulder surgery in the main event of UFC 136 on October 8 in Houston, Texas against the winner of June’s Brock Lesnar-Junior dos Santos matchup, UFC President Dana White said Saturday.
“Probably,” White said after UFC 129. “[I think] that would make a lot of sense.”
Velasquez will face Lesnar or dos Santos as long as the winning Ultimate Fighter 13 coach emerges injury-free from their June 11 meeting at UFC 131 in Vancouver.
A UFC Fan Expo on Oct. 7 and 8 will accompany the UFC 136 fight card.
