UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez -- the man who defeated Brock Lesnar -- is currently undergoing surgery to repair his damaged shoulder ... TMZ has learned.

0113_cain_EX_TMZ_01

UFC kingpin Dana White confirms ... Cain is at a Las Vegas hospital, where doctors are performing arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder to repair a partially torn rotator cuff.

We're told Cain isn't sure exactly when the injury occurred ... but it may have happened during the Lesnar fight back in October.

No word on when Cain is expected to return to fighting shape.

UPDATE: Cain is out of surgery -- we're told it was "100 perfect .... only 3 small incisions."

Cain beat the h3LL out of Brock so bad that he sent him to cry in the mountains of Minnesota for the last few months.

Hope Cain gets better soon so we can see a rematch between him and Brock.

And no not anyone on EARTH wants to see Brock vs Mir 3!

If you follow MMA this IS NOT breaking news or anything. He has had problems with his shoulder. Rehab has not been working & they said that surgery was inevitable and had been scheduled already.

Mexico and all of drug run latino hispanics drug mule community would be SUCKING ON JAPANESE BAYONETS IF THE gringo was not here in the USA making this country what it is today. Brock was good in the WWE throwing fights to win or lose. If you believe Brock didnt throw the fight against DRUG MULE cain vasaline vasquez I have some ocean front property in Arizona to sell to you.

His father and mother I bet where Drug Mules, Uncles, Aunts cousins DRUG MULES, DRUG SMUGGLERS, DRUG CARTEL MEMBERS. There is always going to be someone in hispanic community tied to DRUGS. In mexico there are 5 states where it is LEGAL to carry METH AMPHETAMINE, HEROIN, COCAINE TO NAME 3 OF THE 6. So how could mexico be having a war on drugs. More like a consolidation of businesses.

Mexico should not exist JAPAN killed over 10 million Chinese and would have INVADED, CONQUERED, ENSLAVED, DESTROYED ALL OF mexico, south america if it was not for all the MEN in the USA (like my GRANDFATHER , UNCLES). While you mexicans hid behind your sisters and momma skirts. The first JET (GERMAN) ever shot down was by a BUFFALO Soldier. For a really big hilarious LAUGH google WORLD WAR 2 and mexico.
