Former WWE Star Dave Bautista Gets New Opponent For MMA Debut

Dave Bautista has been furiously training for his professional MMA debut the last year or so. Now he gets a new opponent as Rashid Evans, his originally scheduled opponent, has been forced to drop out because he was in prison.

No, that’s not a misprint. Rashid Evans has been in jail for violating his parole and now the former bodybuilder is getting Vince Lucero. Lucero is on a two fight winning streak against relatively inexperienced fighters, which was preceded by dropping nine of his previous ten. A veteran of Bellator and the IFL as well, Lucero comes into the cage with a number of losses to high profile fighters including Tim Sylvia and Roy Nelson.
