Alberto El Patron says Glory never offered him fight with Bill Goldberg

A couple months back, Bill Goldberg told Ariel Helwani on the MMA Hour that Glory, a kickboxing organization, offered him a fight with Alberto El Patron and he turned it down. Now, the artist formerly known as Alberto Del Rio in WWE tells The MMA Report that Glory never offered him that fight.

"I keep hearing this from a lot of people, but I've never heard anything from GLORY. They contacted me, they approached me, but we never talked about money or names or anything like that. Maybe they approached him and offered him some money and the possibility of fighting me, but that's something only Bill Goldberg knows. I never got back from anybody from GLORY. If he needs to fight, good for him. If they give me the right amount of money that I want, then maybe, we'll see. But I don't think that's gonna be the case, because again, I do so well in pro wrestling that I don't think they're gonna give me the money that I'm asking for."

El Patron has done just fine working the independent scene after his departure from WWE and while there has been interest from the likes of Bellator for an MMA fight, he certainly seems content to continue making big money in a wrestling ring instead of a cage.
