While most Lucha Underground wrestlers are working under long-term contracts with low per-match rates, Alberto El Patron has a unique deal that guarantees him at least $500,000 per year.
Back in March, Alberto suffered a partially torn quad, which has limited his MMA and kickboxing. He claims to have several many big-money offers from top MMA promotions, although UFC denies they have made him an offer.
Alberto El Patron and Rey Mysterio are expected to be featured prominently on the second season of Lucha Underground.
