After recovering from a surgery, Shane Carwin worked really hard to get back on the octagon. Now on his comeback, with his new training regimens, and a much more lighter weight, there will be no one stopping him on pursuing a title shot for the UFC Heavyweight Championship.

UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez said Monday that his surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff was successful, and he's already working out in preparation for a return to the Octagon.

Last Monday, UFC Heavyweight champion – Cain Velasquez – tweeted that his surgery went well, and that he’s working out his legs at Joe Grasso’s gym. But even though he gave out the good news, there are still questions on how soon will he be ready to return inside the Octagon. More over, will the ring rust be a factor when Cain Velasquez comes back to face the winner of the Brock Lesnar vs Junior Dos Santos fight?

With the mentioned match-up likely to happen in October, Cain Velasquez will have a full year off between fights.

Regardless, Cain Velasquez’s tweet must be considered good news. It only means that the heavyweight king is on his way back.

“Later than night, my body started cooling down and I felt my shoulder was just jacked up. I went to the doctor and they said I have a partially torn rotator cuff.” ---Cain Velasquez

After defeating Brock Lesnar and wearing his newly minted UFC Heavyweight championship belt, Cain Velasquez will be under the knife as he acquired a partially torn rotator cuff. According to the fighter himself, he got the shoulder injury during his match with Brock Lesnar. Therefore, his rumored fight against Junior Dos Santos at UFC 129 is unlikely to happen. With Cain Velasquez’s torn muscle, he will undergo surgery and will be out of the commission for at least six months. That being said, his slated opponent – Junior Dos Santos – might take another fight. Whether UFC will institute an interim heavyweight title, that remains to be seen. But one thing is for sure: When Cain Velasquez is all well and ready, he’ll come back and fight.
