After being out of the active competition scene since last year, Cain Velasquez is possible to make an Octagon comeback on October.

Last Friday, UFC announced that their next Fan Expo will take place at Houston, Texas on October 7 and 8. The following day, Dana White hinted that they might have found the card’s main event. If people will based it on the UFC president’s reaction, a Cain Velasquez’s title defense is something that they’re taking into consideration.

Last year, Cain Velasquez was able to snatch the UFC heavyweight title from Brock Lesnar. However, he acquired a shoulder injury that requires mending — landing him out of the scene since then.

Dana White already alluded on the champion’s possible return earlier in the week. And with the UFC Houston event penciled for October, it seems like the right time for Cain Velasquez’s title defense.

Brock Lesnar and Junior Dos Santos will battle for a shot on the title at UFC 131 on June 11 in Vancouver, after their TUF 13 coaching stint. Then, assuming everyone is healthy and good to go, UFC can set the title fight for the UFC Houston event.
