Fight Network is reporting that currently suspended GFW Unified Champion Alberto El Patron is stepping down as President of Combate Americas.
Furthermore, CEO Campbell McLaren recently had the following to say on the situation in an interview with MMA Uno:
“He’s probably stepping back his official roles from Combate and he’s going to focus on more on wrestling for the next year or two. It’s a very challenging enterprise and I think it’s very, very hard on the body and difficult to do. Very physical, very athletic, so I he’s kind of asked me if he can step away and with Saraya, focus on wrestling.”
No word at this time as to whether or not El Patron stepping down as President is related to his current domestic battery investigation.
