I searched Batista on Youtube and the top result is "Batista first UFC fight". I bet theres like a billion wrestling fans who think UFC means MMA haha.

He trains in MMA not UFC. There's a bit of a difference.

Perhaps in that realm in the WWE, but I got an associate who met em. Seemed like a cool kat. Who knows...

At least he didn't try hard to be a bad ass. You know, we know and he knows he won't become a champion, but he's following a dream which I respect and more importantly putting in the work to do it.

I really think Kurt Angle would have done well. Low center of gravity, Gold medalist, he would jack up a lot 205ers and perhaps 225+ because of his quickness.

Still amazes me of how much better Brock is vs Lashley and Bautista. I think it's his mentality of just bull rushing people and pummelling them to oblivion + his athleticism.
Highly doubt there will be another one like em to just come into the UFC and do what he's done. But I'm glad The Reem took care of business though to show the world what a true MMA fighter is.

Yeah can you imagine if Kurt decided to join MMA instead of pro wrestling? The dudes amature wrestling is almost unmatched, and he seems like a guys guy kind of fighter which usually translates well into striking. By his wrestling finishers, he obviously would have been interested in the sub game so he would probably have trained good jitz.

This has been discussed many times. Personally i believe Kurt would've schooled the Tito's back in the day. Would've been the best wrestler ever to step foot in the cage, athletic, crazy toughness and work ethic..

Kurt would be a former champ and a hall of famer. He would have dominated dark-age MMA with his wrestling.

And are people seriously giving Batista props for that fight? I respect him for nutting up and going for something he wants to do but he looked bad there. Nice shoot and a decent finish on the ground but that was it. His stand up was laughable.


Thanks to Leakler for the sig

I think his stand up looked so bad because he was so one track minded. He wanted to take it down and finish it in the mount. Thats why he threw no punches standing up, no elbows on the ground. He only threw shots when he got there. I wouldnt say his stand up is bad but his mentality and adaptability will need some work.
