UFC legend Cain Velasquez spent Monday night in jail, as the 39-year-old was arrested and booked on an attempted murder charge, TMZ reports.

According to the report, details surrounding the specifics of the arrest of Cain Velasquez are unclear, though law enforcement sources told the tabloid that the former fighter was involved in a shooting in San Jose at around 3 PM near a local high school.

In the alleged incident, one person was shot while another was arrested. Nothing further surrounding the circumstances of the situation has been released.

Jail records obtained by TMZ show Cain Velasquez is still in custody as of Tuesday morning and has a court date set for Wednesday at noon.

Velasquez who was born and raised in Northern California, is one of the best heavyweight MMA fighters in the history of the sport. During his reign, Cain beat everyone from Brock Lesnar toJunior Dos Santos.

After parting ways following his last loss to Francis Ngannou, Cain spent several months with WWE (he’s a huge wrestling fan).

Cain trains at the famed American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) gym with Daniel Cormier and Khabib Nurmagomedov, among other MMA stars.

Before getting into mixed martial arts, Velasquez was a star collegiate wrestler at Arizona State University. He was a 2x All-American.

Cops have released Velasquez’s mug shot and confirmed the former fighter was the suspect arrested in Monday’s alleged shooting incident in San Jose.

“The motive and circumstances surrounding this incident are still under investigation at this time,” cops added.
