It wasn’t El Patron’s first foray into cagefighting, as he came into the bout with nine victories and five losses under his belt. However, the experience of Ortiz proved to be too much for the Mexican wrestling legend. Ortiz immediately took down El Patron and got into side control. El Patron worked his way back to his feet, but Ortiz quickly took him down again and started landing elbows. “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” kept the pressure on the pro wrestler and took his back. He then sunk in a rear-naked choke for the win in the very first round.
As per a stipulation, Ortiz now has El Patron’s WWE belt.
