Ortiz Signs With Combate, May Fight El Patron

Over the weekend, Tito Ortiz moved on from Golden Boy MMA, after claiming he and Chuck Liddell were going to build it to be a competitor, to sign with Combate Americas during their most recent event.

Ortiz, who last fought for Golden Boy in 2018 and Bellator the year prior could see action at heavyweight in his yet to be announced debut fight for the company owned by UFC co-creator Campbell McLaren.


 

Per Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer and MMA Fighting, a rumor has surfaced that Combate Executive and professional wrestler Alberto El Patron/Del Rio, might be the man to welcome Ortiz into the cage.

Del Rio, real name Jose Rodriguez said he was preparing for a return to mixed martial arts, following a 9-5 record in the sport and a nine-year hiatus from competition.

Rodriguez competed under a mask and his original wrestling pseudonym, Dos Caras Jr, fighting twice for PRIDE FC, losing in both challenges to Mirko Cro Cop and Kazuhiro Nakamura.
