Batista Making His MMA Debut In October with Possible Pay-Per-View Fight

Posted by Matt Boone July 13, 2012 20 Comments

- Batista’s big announcement that he has been hyping is his MMA debut. TMZ reports that Batista will debut on October 6th in Providence, Rhode Island at the Dunkin’ Donuts Theater for the CES MMA promotion. TMZ adds that the fight will be televised but there is no word yet on which provider will broadcast the event.

Batista will be facing Rashid Evans, not to be confused with UFC star Rashad Evans. Rashid is a 33 year old, 6-2, 210 lb. heavyweight who has a 3-1 amateur wrestling record with no professional MMA fights.

Batista wrote on Twitter that the fight will air on pay-per-view:

“I’m making my MMA debut oct 6th live on PPV check it! BOOOOM there’s the announcement. Sorry haters!”

          Uh, most things you learn about pro wrestling doesn’t apply to MMA.

          Also, funny you can’t even spell idiot correctly. At least get your stuff right before calling someone else names.

      That was his big announcement? That was just as disappointing as one of batista’s matches. Anyway, how many people like me hope batista gets his a– kicked and we never see or hear from him again.

      If his fighting is anything like his wrestling, he’ll do one move the entire time.
