Cain Velasquez
Velasquez was a two-time All-American at Arizona State.

Welcome to SportsNation! On Wednesday, we'll go inside the octagon when UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez drops by to chat about Saturday's UFC 131: Dos Santos vs. Carwin, which will be held at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.

Velasquez (9-0) last fought in October of 2010 when he defeated Brock Lesnar to become the UFC heavyweight champion. Soon after the fight, it was announced that Velasquez suffered a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder and was expected to be sidelined for at least 6-8 months. He hopes to return as early as Fall 2011 to defend his title at UFC 136.

Send your questions now and join Velasquez Thursday at 1:30 p.m. ET!
