Former WWE champion Batista makes MMA debut

It's been A LONG time in the making ... but former WWE heavyweight champion Batista has FINALLY booked his first real deal MMA fight ... TMZ has learned.

Batista has been training to get in the ring for years ... and got REALLY close to fighting in the Strikeforce league back in 2010 -- but the deal fell apart.

But now it's on for real -- the 43-year-old powerhouse signed with the CES MMA league -- and is all set up to fight on October 6 at the Duncan Doughnuts Theater in Providence, Rhode Island.

We're told Batista -- 6'6" and 290 lbs -- will square up against some dude named Rashid Evans ... not to be confused with UFC hurt-maker Rashad Evans.

Sources connected to the deal tell us ... the fight WILL be televised ... but it's unclear which provider will broadcast the fight.

At his age and with is lack of experience, I can't imagine he'll even be competitive against anyone who isn't a glorified can with little to no actual skill. That said, I have no idea who Rashid Evans is and whether or not he will pose a challenge or just be a warm body to get Batista comfortable in his new digs. According to Sherdog, he's 6'2'', 225-pounds and has never fought professionally. As an amateur, he amassed a 1-2 record with one 10 second knockout win and two decision losses.
