Widely recognized as one of the biggest superstars in the history of professional wrestling, Batista recently revealed to TMZ.com that not only is he finished with wrestling, but the massive heavyweight also appears to be on the verge of signing with Strikeforce to compete in MMA.
Batista would join fellow former WWE star Bobby Lashley in the Strikeforce heavyweight division. A clash between those two would appear to be an inevitability at some point down the road.
The 41-year-old Batista stand at 6-foot-6-inches tall and normally walks around near the 300 pound mark. He has little experience in any formal combat related martial art training outside of some amateur wrestling about twenty years ago. However, Batista has been a big fan of MMA for many years and has used training in the sport as a way to keep in shape for some time now.
Batista’s venture into MMA is without a doubt the biggest name to come out of the world of professional wrestling since Brock Lesnar.
