    That was one of the worst MMA fights i’ve watched in a long time. Batista’s punches looked timid as hell until he sat on the whale of a man and proceeded to hammer fist him.

    Why did JR use the #WWE in his post that has really nothing to do with it?

  • Chris

    Batista looked HORRIBLE in there. First fight and all though, so benefit of the doubt…but if he doesn’t improve and his opponents are actual quality…he’ll get KTFO.

    I don’t think that fat bastard even came close to koing him. He landed like 3 decent strikes then kinda gave up.

    Saw the fight love batista but he looked horrible and should have been dq’d for punching the guy in the back of the head repeatedly while he was ground n pounding, but instead the ref stopped the fight and gave him the win. And he was almost knocked out in the first few seconds of the fight. Was really a bad fight all around. Hope the next 1 is better!

    It’s not hard to look good fighting a 300lb piece of crap with 0 KO power. Hope he gets a better opponent next time.
