Sherdog.com recently conducted a ten question Q&A with former WWE Champion Dave "Batista" Bautista, during which he answered questions such as why he decided to do MMA, if he will continue to do MMA, what his training is like and more. Below are several interview excerpts, and you can check out more by clicking in the above link.
The question you have to be tired of answering by this point is, “Why are you doing MMA?” Anyone who has bothered to pay attention knows you have publicly stated you are a fan of the sport. I think people should now be more interested in how you developed that love of fighting. How did it grow to the point where you decided you wanted to try MMA?
When you tried out for WCW back in the day, you were told you would never make it as a wrestler. Obviously, you proved that wrong by becoming one of the biggest stars in the WWE. Some fans have a similarly negative attitude toward your MMA debut. Is there any part of your competitive spirit that wants to prove them wrong, or is this pursuit purely for you?
