Former WWE Superstar Alberto Del Rio has been appointed the new president of the Combate Americas MMA promotion, which was originally launched back in 2012. The announcement was made earlier today.
Del Rio stated the following to ESPN.com regarding the announcement:
“The moment Campbell McLaren sent me the prospect I said yes immediately. As you know, I like to be in front of the camera with a microphone in my hand to tell people all about how proud I am to be Latino and to be a Mexican. I think all of the fighters who are competing for Combate Americas feel the same way.”
The next event for Combate Americas is currently scheduled to take place in Verona, New York this coming Friday.
