TMZ reported today that Batista has signed with Strikeforce. According to those at Strikeforce, Batista has not signed. He was talking with Scott Coker at the press conference after the show on Wednesday night. He is training and does have an offer, how serious to be determined, from another non-big name MMA group. Those close to him this morning said his main direction looks to be acting, not fighting, but he is training.
I agree. However, working in the media, I can attest to the fact that most producers would rather put a guy who looks like Liddell or Tank Abbott than a clean-cut and well-spoken guy like Franklin. But damn, is Franklin ever a great ambassador.
