To me this shows that regardless of whether he does well or not, he'll give it his best and i believe he will gain fans for dedication. Honestly i hate WWE and everything it stands for, i do not agree with professional wrestlers coming to MMA but if they have good intentions and are willing to give their best shot then it can't hurt anybody IMO.
Did hear him on a local radio interview a few years ago. Definitely humble but you can tell he's a hard worker who really pushes himself all the time. Came across as somebody who wants to accomplish things, because its just who he is.
Not sure about MMA for him, but he will definitely come in ready and give it his all. Once he's in the ring though we'll see how he does.
Batista seems like a really nice guy, and like he's able to separate his personality in the ring from his training. It sounds like he has a good grasp on how to go about training and a good understanding of what he wants to do as a fighter.
I really don't expect him to become a champion in Strikeforce, since that heavyweight division has so many tough, experienced dudes in it, but Batista seems like a really good guy, so I'll be pulling for him.
