Props that he took the fight seriously and I can see that he's trained. Imagine if we all fought in a pro fight...we'd probably wouldn't fare much differently. Sparring in the gym and fighting with a live audience is a huge contrast. Being in a live show and putting it on I could feel the energy just being a spectator. I was just putting myself in Bautista's shoes.

Of course his stand up vs any other fighter was very rudimentary. But he got the win and he remained fairly composed where most of his contemporaries go ballz out which in my mind is a show of inexperience. It's about pacing and strategizing.

Clyde's right about his statement above...

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

It's possible that his experience in prowrestling may actually have helped him in overcoming the jitters. Anyways yeah props to him for actually doing it. Though like Herschal Walker I don't think he'll do more then two or three fights cause of his age.

Not his motives.

Yeah, he's doing it just to prove to himself that he can do it. We probably won't be seeing him getting anymore then a few matches in. Remember this is just like Herschal Walker, few fights at a late age.

^After reading your first part I was actually going to say "What happened to Herschal Walker?" but then you covered it lol. Herschal looked like a beast. I mean 50 or not that dude could have been a SF champ.

Well according to his wikipedia page he's still looking to fight but he hasn't fought in over a year. Plus I read somewhere that he'd retired. Also the Zuffa takeover of Strikeforce played a role.

I read an article where he said he is done and hopes to just help build the sport from the sidelines. Hopes to bring more money to the sport so these guys can get paid more.

Sucks. I think he easily could have worked his way up to a SF title shot, and perhaps reign. I'm glad he never made it that big because I wouldnt want to see a dude of his age get smashed up, but he has the skillset to leave himself a memorable legacy in the sport.

Well either way it doesn't matter cause Strikeforce has no heavyweight division. If he'd kept fighting he would've fought in the UFC. I'm not sure how he could have done in the UFC heavyweight division.
