Tonight’s 10th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards just added a little more punch, as UFC heavyweight contender Cain Velasquez will be in attendance at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas to join with Alicia Keys and Eva Longoria to salute the finest in Latin music, beginning at 8pm ET on the Univision network.

Velasquez, fresh from his impressive second round TKO of Ben Rothwell in the co-main event of UFC 104 last month, is also featured with Reggaeton stars Wisin & Yandel in the show’s opening video segment, which was filmed Sunday night in a Porsche Cayenne on the Las Vegas strip.

And while Velasquez is seen in his UFC 104 walkout shirt in the video clip, tonight he will be dressed to the nines in a custom-fitted Prada suit and Salvatore Ferragamo shoes as he walks the green carpet at 4pm local time before his first – but certainly not last - awards show appearance.
