Well, it's official. Alberto El Patron will be fighting UFC Hall Of Famer Tito Ortiz when Combate Americas make theirs debut on pay-per-view with their event on December 7th in Hidalgo, Texas.
The fight was confirmed by ESPN.com after being formally announced on ESPN reporter Ariel Helwani's MMA Show.
El Patron, formerly known as Alberto Del Rio in WWE and a former veteran of PRIDE Fighting Championships, will be meeting "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy," who comes into the fight off of his knockout win over Chuck Liddell at the Oscar De La Hoya-promoted Golden Boy MMA event last November.
The two appeared in an angle at a Combate Americas show last August to promote the announcement of the two fighting, prior to a date, venue and other official details were available.
