Here’s a look at some of the items mentioned on Wednesday’s edition of “UFC Tonight.”

Insider Ariel Helwani provided updates on UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, Team Alpha Male, Hector Lombard and others.

When might Cain Velasquez return

“I spoke to his wrestling coach and he told me that Cain’s doctor cleared him to use his right hand in training two weeks ago, but he’s not sure if Cain’s ready to use the left hand yet. He’s not sure if he’ll be ready by November. He said he won’t rush into the fight that’s targeted for then. He won’t fight until he’s 100 percent. There’s talk of Cain coaching The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America, and the UFC has approached him about it, and they could film it in May in Las Vegas. It would be a likely scenario that he’d coach against Werdum now.”

What’s happening with Team Alpha Male

“Urijah Faber is expecting to fight on July 5, but he has no opponent right now. It’s looking like Chad Mendes wants to fight on a PPV on August 2 against Jose Aldo. And Alexis Davis will train with Team Alpha Male to train some wrestling in preparation for her fight against Ronda Rousey.”

Who Hector Lombard wants to fight next

“He’s very eager to fight Nick Diaz, but he’s thinks Nick running from him, so he’d like to fight Patrick Cote. But Patrick has other plans and doesn’t want to fight Hector.”

Where does Myles Jury go next

“I spoke to his manager. They’d like to fight Nate Diaz. If they can’t get that fight, he’ll sit on sidelines and would like to fight in August. Maybe they’d fight Jim Miller if he wins this weekend.”

Is Alexander Gustafsson going to be in Baltimore for UFC 172

“He’ll be watching the fights in Sweden. He predicts that Jones will use his range and pick apart Glover Teixeira, and he’s looking forward to the rematch.”
