Dave Batista WWE Superstar

Dave Batista

MMAWeekly.com has learned through independent sources that the rumored MMA debut of former WWE wrestler David Batista looks likely to take place in May… but not on U.S. soil.

It has come to light that the main delay in his debut has been aligning his desire to make a professional MMA debut ahead of September, which is when the aspirational heavyweight fighter will begin shooting an undisclosed film project.

Several promotions have been vying for his services, most notably Scott Coker’s Strikeforce outfit, but it appears from sources close to the fighter that the British based BAMMA promotion is emerging as the front runner ahead of their upcoming card at Wembley Arena.

At the time of writing, BAMMA officials declined to comment on the situation, but MMAWeekly.com will stay close to this story as more details come to light.
