Dave Bautista was successful in his professional MMA debut as he defeated Vince Lucero via TKO (Punches) @ 4:05 of the 1st Round. This was a heavyweight bout (265 lbs) where the 40 year old Lucero stepped in on short notice and weighed in at 300 lbs and now sports a record of 20-23.
Bautista was stunned early with two over hand right hands from Lucero. They ended up clinching against the cage until they referee broke it up and restarted the action. Bautista scored a takedown and transitioned to side control where he pounded away at will until the ref stepped in to call a halt to the bout.
