Boxing star Tyson Fury and UFC legend Cain Velasquez will be competing at WWE's upcoming Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia, according to the Wrestling Observer.
Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer claimed that Fury, who made an appearance during this week's premiere of SmackDown on FOX would be taking on Braun Strowman.
These two crossed paths when Strowman threw an opponent at the barricade in front of Fury, sparking an aggressive reaction from the undefeated boxing legend.
Fury will appear this week on Monday Night RAW to address what happened on SmackDown.
According to Meltzer, Cain Velasquez will face new-WWE Champion Brock Lesnar, though he did not state whether the title would be on the line.
Velasquez, who defeated Lesnar at UFC 121 in October 2010, brawled with the Beast on this week's SmackDown, after Lesnar captured the WWE title from Kofi Kingston.
WWE Crown Jewel will take place on October 31, at the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
