Alberto El Patron is no stranger to professional wrestler turned MMA fighter CM Punk, as the two have exchanged championships may times during their times in the WWE.
However, El Patron has transitioned now from the pro wrestling world to the MMA as well, but he is doing things a little different because he is not doing so as a fighter, but as the president of Combate Americas.
El Patron recently appeared on The Roman Show, where the topic of CM Punk’s professional MMA debut was brought up.
"He had the cojones to transition from pro wrestling to MMA I know a lot of people say he didn't do well, but he did well and it was his first fight and first experience, especially in the biggest MMA organization in the world. It wasn't an easy fight for CM Punk. I think he needs to do it again. He needs to train and learn from that first fight. He will come back even better,” said El Patron.
El Patron also talked about the possibility of Punk coming to fight for Combate Americas, something that may become a possibility if Punk’s tenure in the UFC is truly complete.
"I would love to have him fight for this organization or any fighter with talent. They are welcomed to come and fight. They have my number and I'll give them a job,” El Patron said.
El Patron will be making his first appearance as president of Combate Americas for the Empire Rising event, Punk’s future in the sport is not clear at this point in time.
