Quote of the Day - Scott Coker: "Look at Brock Lesnar, He Made the Crossover, Why Not Batista?"

Dave Batista could be making his MMA debut soon.

"They have the desire to fight in MMA and we’re trying to put together a deal that makes sense. Is he signed right now? No. But is he somebody we’d like to see in the cage in the future fighting for Strikeforce? It’s a possibility."

"Just like we did with Herschel (Walker), we’d have to put him into a gym. It doesn’t matter what gym, as long as it’s a reputable mixed martial arts academy. He has to go in there and train because if he didn’t, we’d probably have a short relationship."

"[A fight against Bobby Lashley] That would just be a fun fight to watch"

"We’re not the guys that are putting all the circus fights on. but in all fairness, look at Brock Lesnar. He made the crossover. Why not Batista?"

...

"I think Kimbo’s had his run, so to speak. He’s kind of had his time in the MMA business whereas Batista hasn’t and Herschel hasn’t. We already know how Kimbo will do, so, to me, there’s a little curiosity factor (with Batista)."

--Scott Coker, talking to Sherdog about his interest in signing former WWE superstar, Dave Batista.
