Ex-NFL star challenges Batista to an MMA fight

Apr 4, 2019 - by Steve Gerweck

Shawne Merriman says he wants to take on Batista in a real-life fight and he’s not joking.

“He looks good, man. I know that people will watch that,” Merriman told TMZ. “I know people wanna see that. If he was down to do it, I would do it in a second. I wouldn’t even question that one.”

So, why is Merriman issuing this challenge all of a sudden? It turns out that he has launched his own MMA promotion, Lights Out Xtreme Fighting..

Merriman added, “Hey Batista, if you’re watching this dude, we’re both from the DMV area. I got mad love and respect for you. I know you been around the game a long time, and people wanna see it. Come on. I’ll be ready.”
