Ortiz and El Patron will cross paths Dec. 7 at a Combate Americas event. The two first teased this matchup at Combate 42 in August (video contains NSFW language):
Ortiz hasn't stepped inside the cage since his emphatic knockout of Chuck Liddell at Golden Boy Promotions' first MMA event in November. He has a 20-12-1 record over his career. Helwani noted the former UFC star signed a deal with Combate in April.
While most fans are familiar with El Patron's work in professional wrestling, he has fought sporadically in MMA as well. The two-time WWE champion is 9-5, losing his most recent fight in February 2010 to Mamoru Yamamoto.
