Former WWE champ 'Batista' books pro MMA debut against Rashid Evans for Oct. 6 in Pro

Quote:
"Sorry haters!"

That was the short and sweet tweet from former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Champion Dave Bautista, known as "Batista" inside the squared circle, as he recently booked his mixed martial arts (MMA) debut for Oct. 6, 2012 in Providence, Rhode Island.

That's where the 43-year-old bruiser will face off against Newburgh's Rashid Evans, who also makes his professional fighting debut. "Smash" is 1-2 in amateur competition, having last competed at the Holiday Inn in Foxboro.

From TMZ:

The 43-year-old powerhouse signed with the CES MMA league -- and is all set up to fight on October 6 at the Duncan Doughnuts Theater in Providence, Rhode Island. We're told Batista -- 6'6" and 290 lbs -- will square up against some dude named Rashid Evans ... not to be confused with UFC hurt-maker Rashad Evans. Sources connected to the deal tell us ... the fight WILL be televised ... but it's unclear which provider will broadcast the fight.

Bautista is the owner of the Gracie Fighter Gym in Tampa, Florida, and has trained in combat sports over the past several years. Now, it's finally time to see if he can put his money where his mouth is.

Who's interested?

Should be fun to watch. I hope to god he wins and books a fight with Bobby Lashley to squash the beef.

Read that as Rashad Evans.

Lost interest after I realised.

Jumped on this thinking "rashad evans". Although I'm kind of disappointed now, I was gonna drop like 5 grand on rashad to win at any odds

SilvaWho67 has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Didn't WWE guys learn they're lesson from Broc Lesnar?
I guess we'll have another sad mma career to look forward too.

Doesn't list if there is a weight class or weight limit. Wonder if he will make the cut to 265 or what.

Was going to point this out.

At his age, I have 0 interest in this.
