David Bautista is more than ready to enter the Strikeforce cage. Under the training of Nick Diaz, he might be excited to join the league of MMA. Though there are no deals to be confirmed yet, he might meet former WWE pro Bobby Lashley inside the octagon.

Former professional wrestler, David Bautista, is very much into MMA. The heavyweight pro was present last Saturday in “Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Noons II”. He gave his support to MMA mentor Nick Diaz. Though he noted that the deal is “not even close to done.” Hopefully, if everything runs smoothly, we will see Batista in the cage by March 2011.

Batista left WWE last May and shifting his focus on acting and MMA. Last June, he met Strikeforce executives for a possible deal on the octagon. He immediately began training with Nick Diaz and Cesar Gracie.

Nate Diaz is slated to face a strong wrestler in Dong Hyun Kim. But with Diaz's previous record with the wrestlers, can the match make it a spectacular night? Will Stockton have their not-so-happy New Year?

Nate Diaz is said to make his UFC comeback against Dong Hyun Kim at UFC 125. Nate Diaz is coming from his second welterweight victory after beating Marcus Davis at UFC 118. Dong Hyun “Stun Gun” Kim, on the other hand, last appeared with a unanimous decision win over Amir Sadollah at UFC 114.

Diaz is making his way on the welterweight division. But with lightweight losses from the likes of Gray Maynard, Joe Stevenson and Clay Guida, Diaz is deemed vulnerable against strong wrestlers. If Stun Gun can take him down the same way as that of Sadollah, Stockton might have a sad night.
