The Beast is about to get unleashed. And he'll do so alongside a few Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) veterans.
Former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Champion Dave Batista will be making his mixed martial arts (MMA) debut at the ripe age of 43-years-old on Oct. 6, 2012, at the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island, on DirecTV pay-per-view (PPV) against Rashid Evans.
That's Rashid. Not Rashad.
Providing undercard support for this mega-main event match-up are David Loiseau and John Howard, two former Octagon ass-kickers. Loiseau hasn't competed since winning the Tachi Palace Fights middleweight title back in Feb. 2011 thanks to an elbow injury. He'll be battling Chris McNally.
Howard, meanwhile, has already competed for Classic Entertainment & Sports MMA, having amassed a 2-0 record under its umbrella including winning the promotion's middleweight title. No opponent has been announced for him at present time.
