Fight Magazine held a video interview with former WWE and World champion Batista regarding his transition to mixed martial arts.
Batista said he's always been an MMA fan and wants to try it before he "gets too old." He said being a legitimate fighter is very important for him and this is not a joke and is taking training really seriously.
He didn't like the way pro wrestling was heading and that's why he made the cross over to MMA.
Batista added that a lot of people underestimate his size and quickness and he's pretty strong and agile for a big guy. He said WWE makes you durable with long matches and physical stuff and Brock Lesnar and Bobby Lashley proved that in the cage.
He said he loves to train and it's certainly easier than traveling 300 days a year with lack of sleep and lack of good food as the hardest part in pro wrestling is the wear and tear of traveling around the world.
He has 10 weeks more to go in the training camp and plans to move to California to continue training after he signs a contract.
