Former UFC heavyweight Cain Velazquez reportedly pleaded not guilty in an attempted murder case Friday. 

The 40-year-old was arrested in February and is being charged with attempted murder and other gun-related charges. 

Velasquez has been denied bail on three separate occasions since being jailed following the incident that led to the victim being taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.


He chased a pickup carrying Harry Goularte, who is accused of sexually abusing a 4-year-old family member, through busy streets in three Silicon Valley cities, ramming the vehicle with his own pickup truck during an 11-mile (18-kilometer) high-speed chase, prosecutors said.

Velasquez fired a .40-caliber pistol at the vehicle several times, wounding Goularte's  stepfather, Paul Bender, who was driving, in his arm and torso, prosecutors said.

Velasquez has now pleaded not guilty to the charges, according to ESPN, and a pre-trial hearing is scheduled for September 26. 

His attorney Mark Geragos is expected reportedly to be able to get witnesses to testify but if the case is not dismissed at that point it would then go to trial. 

The trial could begin before the end of the year.

Geragos told ESPN that the prosecution will not be calling Goularte to testify at the pre-trial hearing or the trial. 

The attorney called it 'nonsense' as he argued that Goularte is the victim of the one charge that could get Velasquez life in prison, which is attempted murder. 

A motion hearing will be held August 29 to discuss whether Goularte not appearing as a witness will be fair to Velasquez.  

'They're trying to desperately run away from the fact that the system failed Cain,' Geragos told ESPN. 

'They don't want to get into that. They want to try a case that's divorced from reality.'

According to documents obtained by MMA Junkie in July, the shooting occurred after the Mexican-American heavyweight learned that his relative had been sexually assaulted 'hundreds of times over the course of two years by Goularte while he was at a day care, owned by Goularte's mother.

The relative, who is under 10 years old, told police February 24 that Goularte took them into the bathroom of the day care center and touched their genitals, according to a court document. 

They said Goularte had told them not to tell anyone what happened and that this situation might have occurred '100 times.' 

Goularte pleaded guilty to his criminal charge in June and is scheduled for another court date September 20.

He was released from custody February 25 without bail.

Tristan Thompson’s ex Maralee Nichols shows off rare pic of her baby bump after latest betrayal against Khloe Kardashian

MARALEE Nichols continues to seemingly troll her absentee baby daddy, Tristan Thompson, by sharing a throwback photo online.

On Sunday, the fitness trainer shared a snap of her growing body from a year ago, when she was pregnant with Tristan's son.

In the photo, shared to Maralee's Instagram Stories, the 31-year-old posed in a brown bikini top.

The swimsuit looked loose on her, as it covered her breasts and provided some deep cleavage.

A growing baby bump could be spotted below the bikini.

Maralee seldom shared selfies last year, while she was secretly pregnant with Tristan's child.

But now that the world knows, she has been sharing throwbacks to her pregnancy, while also calling out the baby's father for virtually abandoning them.

On Friday, the fitness model whose affair with Tristan led to their now eight-month-old son, posted a sexy selfie during a workout session.

The 31-year-old posed in a tight gray top and leggings that showed off her rear end.

She puckered as she looked into the camera.

Maralee clapped in the caption: "Less time on captions, more time on actions," before adding the sarcastic tag: "Never skip leg day."

Fans took this as a direct response to her absentee former lover.

"Was this shade?" one follower asked.

Another seemed more certain: "Oh gosh, mama throwing a little shade- hell yeah, he needs to start paying up."

One follower complimented Maralee while also issuing a slam of her own: "Girl, yes! Living your best life!" the fan posted.

"Looking better then any of those girls without saying names!"

KHLOE'S KIDS

But fans know - those names include Khloe Kardashian, who had a long, on-again, off-again relationship from 2016 to 2021 with Tristan.

The couple share four-year-old daughter True, and a newborn welcomed vit surrogate.

It was during the most recent pregnancy when the NBA star confessed to cheating on Khloe with Maralee. 

Paternity tests later confirmed that he had fathered a child as result of the one-night affair. 

Maralee claimed that the Chicago Bulls player has never met their son, while he has slammed her as a “gold digger” amid their nasty custody battle.

WHERE'S TRISTAN?

Back in March, she demanded that the basketball player pay about "$47K" a month and $1million in legal fees.

Tristan has instead seemingly snubbed his son, and according to Maralee's representative Harvey Englander, the boy's father “has not made any attempt to meet their son nor has he provided any financial assistance.”

Khloe welcomed her second baby with cheating ex Tristan following their split over his love child scandal. 

According to Khloe the baby was conceived before she learned that Tristan had cheated on her with Maralee.

The statement said that the baby was conceived in November last year - just days before Khloe and Tristan split over his love child scandal. 

"Khloe is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing," said the rep.
