WWE Star Batista may sign with Strikeforce

Posted 07-08-2010 at 02:13 PM by HitOrGetHit
It seems that after watching Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley make the transition from professional wrestling to MMA, that people think that other professional wrestlers can as well.

WWE star Batista seems to be inching closer to making a move to fight professionally in MMA. Although nothing is official, recent events prove that this could happen sometime in the near future. The talks first surfaced when a rumor got around that Batista wanted to break onto the MMA scene. Things died down once he came out and rejected this rumor. Not too long after though, Scott Coker (Strikeforce) came out and compared Batista to UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar, stating that Batista could make the crossover just like Lesnar did. Although Batista is sure to be strong, powerful, and althletic, the difference here is that Brock Lesnar was already an extremely accomplished amateur wrestler prior to making his UFC debut. Lesnar had this as his base, and went on to add a solid ground game to his arsenal. Batista does not have the same skillset that allowed Lesnar to come into MMA, and achieve immediate success.

Some fans point to Bobby Lashley also making a successful transition. This is very similar to Lesnar's case. Lashley was already a strong wrestler before joining the MMA ranks which gave him a base to build from.

The next bit of evidence that Batista could possibly come to MMA, is reports of him training with the Cesar Gracie camp. Is this him just training to stay in shape or because he likes it? Or is this him trying to get ready to make his MMA debut? Only time will tell.
