Khabib Calls Ex-WWE Star After Pedophile Attack

The former UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov recently showed some support to his friend and former teammate, Cain Velasquez, who is entailed in a legal dispute. Velasquez is behind bars as his attempted murder trial draws near. He recently plead not guilty to attempted murder and other charges stemming from a February confrontation with an alleged molester of his son.


The former UFC star Cain Velasquez is facing as many as ten charges after being involved in a shooting in late February. Cain had followed Harry Goularte, who was recently charged with 1 felony count of lewd and lascivious act for allegedly molesting Valesquez’s close relative, along with his mom and stepdad from their home. Goularte was let out of jail under supervised release despite being charged.

Velasquez faces a 20-year prison sentence if found guilty of attempted murder. He is scheduled to return to court on Sept. 26 for a pre-trial hearing in Santa Clara, CA. Meanwhile, Goularte is scheduled to return to court on Sept. 20 for his child molestation case.

Khabib sends a message to Cain Velasquez

During a recent interview with Red Corner MMA, Nurmagomedov revealed the context surrounding the last time he spoke with Velasquez:

“Yes, just before the flight I had a phone call with him for 5-7 minutes. If I’m not mistaken, they only get one phone call from jail per day. I know that he talks to his kids, to his family. I got 5-7 minutes or so to have a word with Cain. I was surprised that he manages to hold himself in high spirits,” Nurmagomedov said of Velasquez.

“We talked, we even laughed a bit, we discussed some details of his case. Although I’m not going to reveal those…it is what it is. God chose to test him in this way – in this particular place at that particular moment. And he has to go through this.”
