There is life for Cain Velásquez after he lost the Ultimate Fighting Challenge heavyweight title last November.
And, a television audience will be able to see that life on the reality television series 'Fight Factory.'
"We put that loss behind me," said the 30-year-old fighter, who lost his title in 64 seconds to Brazil's Junior dos Santos in a bout televised on the Fox network.
'Fight Factory' aired the fist of nine, one-hour shows on Aug. 15. The show airs on Nuvo TV, and can be seen on Comcast (Channel 477), Dish 167 and AT&T U-Verse 194.
Over the course of the show, cameras will follow the fighters through training and their personal lives.
Aside from Velásquez, who lives in Gilroy and travels to San José for his workouts, the show features fighters like former Parlier resident Billy Evangelista, Josh Koscheck, who has two Fresno gyms, and AKA gym owner Javier Méndez, among others.
"I don't mind that they're there watching us. Not at all. We're just training, and they're not in the way at all," said Velásquez, who competed in wrestling while majoring in education at Arizona State University.
"They do interviews. I do those all the time anyway, but a lot of these guys have good stories to share," said Velásquez, the first Latino to win the UFC title.
In the first episode, Koscheck, the A.K.A. owner had a run-in with Mendez. The argument went so far that Koscheck changed the name of his two Fresno gyms from AKA to 'Dethrone Base Camp.'
The 6-foot-1, 240-pound Velásquez was seen speaking with Méndez, who happens to be the godfather to Velásquez' 2-year-old daughter, Coral.
"I think I'll keep her (Coral) away from the cameras. She's still too young to be recorded. I don't know. I would have to talk with my wife," said Velásquez.
"We talk about everything else though with the cameras on. Everything is out. I've told them if there's something that I don't want to do, I won't do it. Like Javier Méndez is the godfather to my daughter, and he's having something with Josh, but people know that I'm good with both of them."
Velásquez -- who watches popular reality shows 'Jersey Shore' and 'Velocity,' a cable network reality show about -- believes the show will actually see how MMA fighters approach the sport and life's challenges.
He will keep the UFC title a priority, making sure there is no interference from the show.
"We, my camp, got to play different. I didn't do the game plan last time, and that was my mistake, but this time, we're going to move forward. I'm looking forward to the fight. It's my whole goal," said Velásquez.
