Didn't he lose like 75 lbs? I'm pretty sure I had read he would compete at like 185.

Batista was around the 260270 mark when he was in the WWE. I have a very hard time believing he's remotely close to that kind of weight. You got a source?

We're told Batista -- 6'6" and 290 lbs -- will square up against some dude named Rashid Evans ... not to be confused with UFC hurt-maker Rashad Evans.


Rashid evans competes at heavyweight

That's going to be his billed weight. The WWE always inflate stats. He's close to 6ft 4/5 and around 260 when he was on gear. He's been off it for a while. So i wouldn't be surprised if he was around the 230 mark.

He lost a ton of weight immediately after leaving WWE but he's put it all (and possibly more) back on for a film.

I mean I have no interest in the fight but I don't feel any negativity about this. The guy does love the sport and has been trying BJJ with Cesar Gracie for ages (even runs an affiliated gym). He wants to try fighting - more power to him.

Its also worth remembering that if Strikeforce hadn't been bought by the UFC we'd almost certainly had seen him fight for them last year. He even bitched about the UFC stopping his dream.

Agreed. Daves been trying to do this for years. I reckon one and done for him as his not young. But fare play to him lets see him achieve his dream.
