Khabib's Message to Cain Velasquez

Cain Velasquez is a two time UFC Heavyweight champion.

The former champion was arrested earlier this year for an alleged murder attempt.

He was taken into custody for shooting a man who was accused of molesting a child, known to him.

The fighter's bail hearing was scheduled for earlier today, for the second time after the arrest.

But Velasquez was denied of the bail yet again.

Khabib Nurmagomedov earlier shared a heartfelt message for his fellow fighter ahead of the hearing - "We love you Cain, you are the best."

Many came in support of the former champion.

This is not the first time Khabib has shown support to the old friend.

Khabib was one of the few who came in support of Velasquez when the news of the latter's arrest first broke.

He also shared a picture of them with Daniel Cormier on his instagram to take part in the mass movement #FreeCain.

The pair shares a great bond and were teammates in AKA (American Kickboxing Academy) back in the days.
