Dave Batista wins MMA debut by TKO in sloppy fight at CES MMA
Dave Batista wins MMA debut by TKO in sloppy fight at CES MMA - Bloody Elbow
ormer WWE champion Dave Batista made his MMA debut tonight at CES MMA, facing veteran mixed martial artist (and 300 pounder) Vince Lucero in the night's main event. |
It was a risky first fight for Batista, given the 40+ pro fights of Lucero. But Batista was able to score a first round TKO after a rocky start.
Lucero caught him and hurt him very early and then pushed him back with a flurry of punches. Batista hung on while Lucero held him on the cage, landing some punches. He clipped him again seconds later and then caughe him some more, but his bpunches had no real snap on them and Lucero did look to tire early on.
Batista was able to take the punches well enough to survive and push Lucero into the cage, but Lucero ended up landing another flurry before waving to the crowd and dancing a little in the clinch.
Batista was able to get a takedown and take side control, and then move to the back. Once it turned back to mount, Batista was able to land some solid punches, forcing Lucero to give up his back again. At that point, Batista opened up with a flurry of punches forcing the ref stoppage despite Lucero saying he was hit repeatedly in the back of the head.
Following the stoppage the two men jawed at each other.

Bowling Shoe Ugly.
The commentary was probably the worst I've ever heard, complete mispronounciations of fighters' names(and not unknowns, but name UFC guys like Tim Silva- yeah, SILVA) and the announcer called TKO's stoppages via "excessive unanswered strikes".
They even put over Batista's WWE title wins and the fact that he's wrestled over ~GASP~ THREE HUNDRED pro wrestling matches, which in reality is basically the number of matches a WWE wrestler does in oh....a year. Oh and they said that Batista had turned DOWN offers from UFC and SF to "choose his own path", seriously GTFO.
Total joke, Batista got clipped by a dude who looks like what Scott Ferrozzo would if he "let himself go"(let that shit sink in for a minute). Any top 100 HW could take Batista and I can appreciate that he's just debuting, but if he wants the hype of main eventing, he has to be ALOT better than that. I'm probably the most serious pro wrestling fan on this forum and I completely hated this garbage.
Nice to see Howard and The Crow on the card, but WHOA was that ever piss poor.
