MMA Fighter Speaks on Batista’s Chances of MMA Success

Nick Paglino

Sherdog.com is reporting that former WWE star Batista recently participated in a 2 day training camp, which was put together by Strikeforce, with MMA fighter and trainer Cesar Gracie. The camp took place in California, and Gracie had the following to say about Batista’s work in the camp and his prospective MMA future:

"He’s got a lot to learn but his strength alone is impressive," Gracie said. "Obviously he’s a beginner at jiu-jitsu but we can take a guy like that that’s already a strong athlete like that and teach him what to not get caught in."

"You’re talking about a guy who is very powerful, very strong and an extremely hard worker, and if he can put it all together he could be a very formidable force," he said. "And he’s at the right camp for that… Our camp is known for bringing people with nothing and making them into something. We like to make champs."
