- It is expected that former WWE star Dave Bautista will make his MMA debut for Strikeforce in the second quarter of 2011.

On today’s MMA hour talk show with Ariel Helwani, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said that “there’s still dialogue” with Bautista, but they expect him to fight for the company between April and June in 2011.

Bautista, 41, reportedly wants a three-fight deal with Strikeforce and is continually training for his first MMA fight.

    @rob, where talking strikeforce, with the money they are spending on him they will alert him of any tests…Just like WWE does

  • Rob

    Batista does know he has to take a legit drug test before doing MMA right ? I mean this isn’t the WWE where certain guys don’t have to take them or are made well aware of them in advance

  • Gary

    @matt, what about lashleys first 3 fights? and he actaully has wrestling expirence, unless im wrong….Batista has no expirence beside wwe. I would like to see the fight, but my money is on lashley

  • Jack

    I think Bautista is serious about getting into MMA, so I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. The key will be conditioning, and if he can do better than Lashley, he’ll have a good shot I think. I’m lookin forward to seeing him in the cage.

  • Matt

    doubtful Gary, Lashley looked terrible in the last fight I saw him in, in the 2nd round he looked gassed, like he had just fought 10 rounds :P

  • Gary

    batsita ginna get easy 2 matches then final will be bobby lashley….and bobby will mop the floor with him

  • donners

    if booker t’s not doing anything, sign him up strikeforce!!
