Batista -- I'm Fighting for REAL Now!

Quote:
He's a former six-time WWE heavyweight wrestling champion of the world -- but this weekend Batista finally confirmed that he's now fighting for real ... for an MMA company called Strikeforce.


The 6'5", 290 pound behemoth was out in Hollywood this weekend -- where he told our camera guy about the move ... and hinted that he already has his first fight lined up.

The 40-something-year-old recently left WWE after his contract expired ... and there had been rumors floating around that he wanted to get into Mixed Martial Arts fighting.

Vs Bobby Lashley for the biggest freak show fight ever.

I was kinda like "Eh, whatever" when I first read the report but now that it's confirmed I'm sad. Never having been a fan of Batista and knowing that Batista knows jack all when it comes to amateur wrestling means that his signing is worthless.

One to many guys have seen what Brock has done and think that they can emulate it. While Pro Wrestlers are legit tough guys I don't think Batista is anything more than attention sign. This doesn't really look good for StrikeForce. First Lashley and now Batista...

..yet they may let Jake Shields go to the UFC. Wtf are they thinking?

Personal Top Five

1. Brock Lesnar
2. Roy Nelson (KFP BAYBEE)
3. Clay Guida
4. Dan Henderson
5. Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipović

Everyone would have a heart attack if Batista won a fight. By the way, he looked drunk as ****. Maybe he was joking..

Edit: Guys, it's fake

It's unfair to put Lashley in the same category as Batista, Lashley had a great amateur wrestling career, only injury stopped him going to the olympics, not to mention he was an American Army wrestling champ.
Batista has literally no background in any discipline!

Batista would get smashed. Badly. Would be a big draw though.

I'm sure he would go right down to business if he signed with Strikeforce, if you know what i mean.
