Alberto Del Rio Inks New Deal With UFC – Will Not Be Competing


Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio will be providing Spanish-language commentary at upcoming UFC events.

Del Rio left WWE in 2016 and last year was cleared of kidnapping and sexual assault charges leveled against him by his ex-girlfriend.

Lucha Libre Online reports that Del Rio will be on commentary for this Saturday’s UFC Fight Night: Volkov vs. Aspinall, which will be headlined by the heavyweight clash between Alexander Volkov and Tom Aspinall.

It was noted that while Del Rio has inked a short-term deal with the MMA promotion, there is interest from both sides for a potential long-term partnership.

Prior to joining WWE, Del Rio fought several times for Pride Fighting Championships in the early 2000s and had a highly publicized fight with Tito Ortiz in 2019.

UFC Fight Night: Volkov vs. Aspinall will take place this Saturday and air from the O2 Arena in London, England.
