Current ROH and Lucha Underground star Alberto El Patron aka Alberto Del Rio in WWE, recently stated in an interview that he was offered a contract from the UFC. A deal that was most likely similar to ex-WWE star CM Punk was given from the MMA promotion.
“Yeah, I said everybody. Everybody has approached me in different ways. But again, the offers were just…we were so apart. Those organizations and I were so apart in the money that I was pretending to make and they were pretending to pay me that it was not going to be possible. But yes, everybody tried to find me.”

Alberto is booked for the Bustin4Autism Wrestling Event show in Pasadena, Texas for Clutch City Productions on July 12th. More details on that show are available at clutchcityproductions.com.
