Dave Bautista (aka WWE's Batista) will be making his MMA debut against Rashid Evans (not the UFC fighter) on October 6th at The Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island. The fight will be televised on DirecTV on The CES Network (Classic Entertainment and Sports Promotions). The CES Network will be airing the event and will also produce a four part series on Bautista in anticipation of the event.

The fight has only been cleared for the CES Channel. That means only about 17% of homes in the country will have access to watch the fight.
