Dave Batista Upset Over Opponent Change To MMA Fight; Looking For A Way Out

We're being told Dave Batista is threatening to pull out of his MMA fight because he is angry about the change of opponent. Apparently the former WWE star fought with the promoter over replacement opponents all weekend.

Batista's team is looking for a way out of the fight and there's a real chance it gets canceled.

Another issue that Batista is upset about is his upside (pay-per-view bonus) on a show he now realizes isn't going to sell. We're told if the promoter doesn't front-load more cash, the show may implode.

As previously reported here on, Batista is currently scheduled to fight Vince Lucero on Saturday in Providence, Rhode Island.
