Batista training at Cesar Gracie's in Lodi, Calif.


Former World Wrestling Entertainment star Dave Batista started a two-day training stint with the Cesar Gracie  camp Wednesday after Strikeforce helped facilitate the connection between the potential signee and the noted California gym.

“We’ll see how it goes,” Gracie said. “If he wants to fight, we’ll get him going.”

Batista began talks with Strikeforce last month after ending a lucrative eight-year run with the WWE. Batista said in interviews that he had become disillusioned with the industry and has pursued film acting.

Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker has said he would be interested to see Batista, 41, tested in the MMA cage, and is particularly interested in matching him with another WWE alumnus in Bobby Lashley.

I totally apologize to whoever that nice young woman is, that was very inappropriate of me to joke around like that. I should really keep those comments to myself.
