— Although it was starting to look unlikely recently, it appears that Alberto El Patron (aka Alberto Del Rio) will in fact make a return to MMA fighting in the near future. As of right now, the two promotions that seem to be the most likely to obtain El Patron’s services are either Bellator MMA or Glory. Glory is actually a kickboxing organization, so one would assume El Patron will end up in Bellator MMA.
