Former WWE Champion Batista is scheduled to make his MMA debut next weekend, but may have no locked-in opponent. He was originally contracted to to face Rashid Evans. Evans was apparently in jail, but had been released when he got the opportunity to fight. Evans then violated probation and is back in jail and 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.
