According to legendary WWE commentator Jim Ross and a report on WrestlingINC.com, Dave Batista could be the latest professional wrestler headed to the violent world of mixed martial arts.
Here is what J.R. posted on his official blog:
“Speaking of MMA, I’ve heard some rumblings that when Batista gets healthy that he might try his hand in the MMA world. This rumor is FAR from official but I do know that Batista has been doing some MMA training and has a bona fide interest in the genre.
This would be a huge challenge for Batista if he indeed attempts to compete in MMA at a high level which, again, is not a done deal.”
UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar and Strikefoce’s Bobby Lashley made the jump to MMA a few years ago and have done surprisingly well for themselves, particularly Lesnar.”
