I haven't got a chance to see the fight yet, but I'm glad he won

Does Bautista know he can put his hands up to block punches? He was terrible....not unusual for someones first fight, gotta treat the guy as a normal human.

Not many people are brock lesner

And this is the man who gave Lashley smack and said who's stand up is shit a year-year and a half ago. I hope they fight one day, freakshows ftw! Glad he won though. Takes balls to say no to millions and try out MMA because you like it.

I guess taking Nature Boy chops for years made him think punches don't hurt haha WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Horrid hands but a surprisingly good shoot.


Thanks to Leakler for the sig

He was afraid to throw punches. He didnt have any killer instinct so he was focusing on a gameplan instead of actually using fighting skills. He didnt really throw anything on the feet, and at one stage he had his opponent's arm pinned, opening him for viscious elbows, but he instead looked for another position. His mind was only focused on one thing, and that was getting the mount. He never throught about working his way in or setting things up.

I'm not really one to say "It was good for his first fight". In your first fight you want to excell in one aspect, like striking or BJJ, and then you can advance forward from there into a more well rounded fighter. Batista didnt show any skills in any area really. Still will be interested in his progress though. I see him being triangled or guillotined in his next one.

His standup probably isn't that bad, he's been training combat sports for a long time and his hands aren't that slow. He just panicked horribly and forgot all of his training and got the win on size and strength advantage. Wins a win, he's human, he panicked and forgot to move.

Pretty much. Since he didnt really throw a shot, you cant guage his stand up yet.

You gotta give him credit that he remained fairly calm and was able to execute his inevitable game plan of taking his opponent down and getting the TKO.

What would have made me roll my eyes is he went "Super Mario" on em. He paced himself which means he was following a game plan and did not expend too much energy in the cinch. He would have been fine in the 2nd round without gassing. Third who knows...

Got a friend who met em before. He's a cool dude. Pretty much an average joe.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

What do you mean? Before i came to this forum from the VS wrestlingforum, ppl referred to him as the p***y monster. His list of WWE divas was quite good.
