- Batista’s MMA debut for the CES promotion will take place from the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island. As noted before, the October 6th fight will be against heavyweight Rashid Evans, not to be confused with the UFC fighter Rashad Evans. Tickets go on sale today through Ticketmaster and are priced at $20, $35, $55, $75, $125 and $250. The event will indeed air live on DirecTV pay-per-view.
Batista is currently training at his gym in Florida and highlights from his eight-week training camp will air in a four-part series on DirecTV beginning at 6am on October 6th.
Batista said in a press release issued Thursday:
“Fighting MMA is a dream come true. I’m very excited to make my debut in Providence with Jimmy Burchfield, who has so much experience putting on fights. CES treats me like family and I can’t wait to make my debut with them. MMA has been my lifelong dream and I’m glad to be able to do it with them on the East Coast.”
