Velasquez eyes October return

Velasquez lost his belt to Fabricio Werdum at 188 in what was his first defeat in more than four years.

According to a UFC Tonight report, Velasquez came out of the defeat to Werdum without any serious injuries and that he wanted to return to action on the same fight card as his training partner, light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier.

UFC 192 will take place at the Toyota Center on October 3, the same venue where he defended his title Junior dos Santos on at UFC 166.

According to sources close to Velasquez, he does not have an opponent in mind yet.
