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.

In MMA, Batista will...

* Dominate
* Get destroyed


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.

Dude is going to get handled. I'm pretty sure Wes Sims could beat him

He apparently lost a backstage fight against Booker T.

I dunno...a guy in his 40s who (based on anecdotal evidence) doesn't have much fighting ability...nevermind Wes Simms, he'd probably get destroyed by Herschel Walker.

He could always fight Bob Sapp or Jose Canseco, even Pudzianowski. Might make for a decent freakshow.

Roidtista will get his ass kick. He's too slow and not athletic enough. Unlike him, Brock Lesnar has great speed for a guy his size.

He is 41 and he has a history of peds. The reason why he quit the wwe is because he wants to focus on acting. So we will see what he plans on doing.

The'll put him against bums. If they put him against anyone even half decent he'll get ****ed up. He can barely move, he's 41, will likely gas in 2 mins and as far as I know he has no real martial arts background like lesnar and lashley do, hes a ****ing idiot if he thinks hes going to be successful.

lol, don't worry. He has no athletic background. He was into bodybuilding before he got to WWE. He will be a jose conseco.

As much as I like MMA I mean anyone can make it to the MMA if this guy makes it there... to be honest I would not be surprised if someone like Chris Brown or 50 cent makes it there

Well, he certainly isn't Dr. Heathcliff 'Cliff' Huxtable.

50 cent wouldnt be half bad. He was a golden gloves champion. He has a decent amature boxing background from what i know. Added to this he must be pretty strong and with his money and time he could train all day everyday with the best people on earth.

Funny thing is a proper MMA promotion wouldn't pull this.

ShoBox is making Strikeforce go after Dave.

I expect his MMA career to be about as successful as Mickey Rourke's boxing career, if not less so.

this has to be a joke, why waste their time with him when they could just focus on building lashley who's 10years younger and better wrestler
