UFC News: Jake O’Brien vs. Cain Velasquez at UFC Fight Night 14

Another match was announced.  We knew that up and coming heavyweight Cain Velasquez was going to be on the card, but we didn’t know his opponent.  Your’s truely tried to guess his opponent and several names came to mind, however I can assure you I did not think of Jake O’Brien.  Jake O’Brien was cut by the UFC two months ago following his loss to Andrei Arlovski.  I do not know why he was cut.  He lost to one of the best heavyweights in the world and it was his first loss in the octagon.  O’Brien was 3-0 in the UFC including a win over Heath Herring.  It appears O’Brien was re-signed by the UFC and he will return against Cain Velasquez on July 19th.  Cain Velasquez is just 3-0 in MMA and 1-0 in the UFC.  He KO’d Brad Morris in the first round at UFC 83.  Velasquez has been mentioned along with Shane Carwin as the future of the divison.  This should be a good test for him.
