Albert Del Patron and Combate Global are going at it in court and the former WWE Superstar has some high demands from the MMA promotion.

There was a conference on Friday, November 12th regarding the lawsuit that Alberto filed against Combate Americas. The former WWE Champion alleges that the company owes him $250k for his December 2019 MMA fight against Tito Ortiz.

Patron alleges he gave Combate Americas access to his social media accounts and “now that the parties have no working relationship, the Defendants refuse to answer questions about the social media accounts.”

Combate Americas tried to get the lawsuit dismissed by arguing that there was a “lack of subject matter jurisdiction and for failure to state a claim.” Parton’s legal team argued against that point and the court approved that Alberto will be allowed to file an amended lawsuit by December 13th.

The two sides will have to file any responses from those filings by February 18, 2022.   

Patron is suing for breach of contract, unjust enrichment, conversion. The conversion is for not turning over the social media accounts. He is after the following as part of the lawsuit:

Compensatory damages in the amount of $250,000.00 for Defendant’s breach of contract

Interest of at least $26,250.00 due and owing from and after December 31, 2019

An award of Plaintiffs’ costs and reasonable attorney’s fees

Return control of all social media accounts to Plaintiffs

Further relief as may be just and proper

There will likely be a lot to unpack when this case is finally settled. We will continue monitoring this situation here at Ringside News.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
