Apparently his rolling with some of the Gracies if i remember correctly.

Had some choice words for Lashley in the past as well, saying how his striking is shit etc. while he himself hadn't done anything at all. I really hope they sign this fight and Lashley smashes him.

I guess we'll have another sad mma career to look forward too.
I guess they didn't or they'd all become mixed martial artists and win a championship.

Dude was a bad pro wrestler, and now wants to fight?

if he wants to do it because he really wants to fight, the fine... follow your dreams. But I don't expect him to be good.

If he'd want to go after a paycheck, he'd go back to the WWE to make millions. I'm guessing he just wants to try out the competitive side and MMA, absolutely no harm in that.

I doubt he'll be good aswell, but if he is decent it'll def be interesting. He's cut A LOT of weight I believe since dropping off the steroids. He was planning to fight in Strikeforce so he's been getting in shape for a while. I doubt him training with the gracies is relevent because at 40 years old, you will be able to do shit or not. If he can strike and wrestle, I think he'll do alright but since he has very little amatuer wrestling and is probably still a big guy (which usually means slow striking and bad endurance), he'll probably be shit.

Batista was on MMA UNCENSORED LIVE recently and mentioned Lashley. He said he would still be interested in that and that the fans would also. He also mentioned that they were good friends in the WWE.


Batista said he is doing this because he wants to experience it. He isnt planning to go for a world title or anything.

He also said he got dropped in training the other day. Said it was the first time that his legs gave up underneath him.

Batista -

“It’s going great. I got dropped for the first time, last week. It was Stephan Bonnar. He hit me right in the head. My legs went numb and I dropped. I just got up and continued the round. It’s just one of those things. I love it.”

Batista -
Actually makes me kind of like the guy. I love to see someone completley honest about things. Like when they asked I think Griffin (or Bonnar) if he liked getting hit and he replied "Fuk no, that shit hurts". Lying or whatever doesnt make you fight any better. Just because Batista (fuk the real spelling) said that he got dropped, doesnt change the outcome of the fight against Rashid "Jones Jones" Evans.
