Former WWE Champion Batista announced that he's going to fight for Strikeforce. The TMZ cameras caught up with Batista over the weekend and he said he is finished with WWE, and intends to fight for the MMA promotion. "I'm done with WWE," he said.

When asked if he will be fighting for UFC, Batista responded, "Strikeforce." When asked who he will fight, Batista said, "I know, but I'm not telling you." To view the footage, visit

Powell's POV: This is an incredibly strange decision by Batista, who is starting an MMA career while in his early 40s. He can always go back to WWE, but it would be interesting to see whether a one-sided MMA loss would damage his stock with the company.
