Velasquez stopped by a television taping for WWE NXT and worked out at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.

“All the athletes here have just been really easy to talk to — ask questions and get good feedback,” Velasquez said. “I’m just looking to be in here and learn as much as I can in the time that I’m here. I’ve been a fan of the sport since I was a little kid, now I get to participate in it. It’s great that I have all this accessible to me.”

Velasquez also used DDP Yoga, which was created by former wrestler Diamond Dallas Page, during his class. He is a former NJCAA national champion at Iowa Central and was a standout for Arizona State University before embarking on his MMA career.
