Bautista

Prepping for MMA Debut ...

with 'Real Housewives' Star

EXCLUSIVE

1005-Dave-Bautista-Teresa-Giudice
With just hours left until his MMA debut, former WWE champ Bautista has been prepping for his big match by hanging with an experienced fighter ... "Real Housewives" star Teresa Giudice.

TMZ obtained a photo of the two kickin' it at a hotel in Rhode Island -- where the 43-year-old will get in the ring for the first time ever on Saturday night to take on Vince Lucero.

Turns out Teresa the table-flipper is in town for a breast cancer awareness event and just happened to be staying at the same hotel as Bautista. We're told the two immediately hit it off ... and even had a convo about MMA.



As for the fight, Dave's rep tells TMZ he plans to watch the Bruce Lee classic "Enter the Dragon” in his hotel room tonight because "it's the greatest martial arts movie ever made."

True.

Teresa, you are disturbed! You are making a fool of yourself and embarrassing your children. If this was just a manipulated set-up for the show, then you sold out as a fraud. I guess the U.S.A. missed the memo about not resorting to violence to solve your problems. When violence and temper tantrums become a natural reaction (like flipping over tables with glass on it) then it's time to get some Obama mental health care, before people get hurt.

He should punch that beyotch in the throat so no one would have to hear her nasal whine anymore. I believe she's "exploring her options", if you know what I mean, since her drunken husband is facing a couple years in jail.

And I think she really is retarded. That downward slope of the eyes is a dead giveaway. Her juiced up husband's eyes slant downward too. Their poor kids ...

This story is hog wash. I was there when this picture was taken. Bautista was pulled aside by Teresa's PR agent to take the photo opportunity. There was no chemistry and the moment lasted only as long as it took to take the shot. Reality Weekends get your story right. You have a crappy rag if this is how your publish. JS
