– Former WWE Champion Batista is scheduled to make his MMA debut next weekend but currently has no opponent. He was scheduled to face Rashid Evans (not the UFC star). Evans was apparently in jail but released when he got the opportunity to fight. Evans has since violated probation and is back in jail. He won’t be released in time for the fight.
Batista’s back-up opponent was Bruno McKee, a super heavyweight who trains at his gym in Florida. McKee would have also been making his pro debut but he has pulled out of the fight because he wasn’t ready. The promoters of the event say they have another opponent ready and should be making the announcement soon.
Speaking of the fight, here is a new promotional poster:
