With the show eight days away, who Bautista will be facing is still a mystery.

Bautista's original opponent was Rashid Evans, whose main claim to fame is that his name would be easily confused with one of the biggest stars in the sport. He was given the lottery ticket of being someone who had never had a pro fight, but was going to get to headline a pay-per-view. The downside is that Evans was incarcerated, but according to trainer Phil Dunlap of Advanced Fighting Systems in Mahwah, N.J., they were able to get him released based on the fact he was given this opportunity.

According to Dunlap, Evans violated the terms of his probation, when caught driving without his license, and then panicked when police tried to pull him over. He's back in jail and won't be out until after the fight.

The golden ticket was then passed to Bruno McKee, a super heavyweight at his gym that also would have been making his pro debut after a few amateur fights. But days ago McKee, a part-time fighter compared with Tank Abbott, pulled out, from a combination of nerves and feeling he wasn't going to have enough training time to get ready, according to sources.

WTF is this? LOL.

Last I heard, Bautista (why did WWE drop the "U" from his name? Afraid the tards would get confused?) had opened a gym claiming to be a practitioner of "Gracie Jiu Jitsu."
Is this so he can tell people who enquire about his "gym" that he 'does too fight MMA' and his 'black belt' is legit?

Sounds like a sad, sad joke of a story to me. Phone Post

And LMAO @ there being a "Rashid" Evans willing to take the payday. Too bad they can't just air the PPV live from the prison cafeteria. Phone Post

Maybe he'll fight John Jones or Anderson Silver instead. I hear Chuck Little might be looking for a comeback fight. Phone Post

Literally thousands of guys, IMO.

At 5'11 1/2" 165Lbs, I would take this fight!

He's obviously and sadly not looking for one. He is looking for a psuedo-"name" to squash.

Biggest difference between him and Brock, besides an age difference of around 20 years or so, is that Brock could make his MMA debut against Min Soo Kim and make legitimate news headlines for just making his debut, period. Brock Lesnar had legitimate credentials besides his stint in pro-wrestling.

Bautista has a sun tattooed around his navel (arguably gay-er than Brock's cocksword), a receding hairline, and no business fighting in MMA, in my opinion. Maybe I am wrong, but his "struggle to find an opponent" is evidence that he is not at all "real." He was a bodybuilder turned pro-wrestler, who was pushed to the top of WWE like every other guy who was ever built like The Ultimate Warrior or better.

I remember going to a show with my Dad one time when I was a lot younger, back when Bautista still had a full head of hair and was first starting out. I remember the "Smackdown" entrance looking small in comparison to this guy. And my Dad saying, "Now THAT is some steroids. Jesus Christ. It's not possible for ANYBODY to have delts that big naturally. Anybody. That guy is freakishly huge. That's not at all believable. Even these people gotta be taking one look at this guy and saying 'steroids.' Come on." And last pic I saw of Bautista, he was in a gi, and looked like he dropped about 115Lbs of shredded muscle since that show my Dad and I went to ten years ago. Phone Post
